International Benchmarking Workshop on Postal Regulatory Issues 04 > 06 March 20 | Lisbon, Portugal


The workshop, co-organised with CTT Portugal and facilitated by Derek Osborne, will take place soon after the European Commission will have published its roadmap for reviewing the postal regulatory framework.

As part of the review process, the Commission will be working in 2020 on the latest application report on the Postal Services Directive and reporting on the implementation of the Cross-Border Parcel Delivery Services Regulation. Policy-makers and postal and delivery operators will be seeking to identify the major priority areas to address in the review, including potentially the reform of the universal service scope, how universal service net costs are calculated and financed, and future extensions to the reach of postal regulation in terms of the areas and market players to be addressed.

The workshop will provide a special opportunity for those closely engaged in postal regulation to share and discuss in depth their experiences and views on the regulatory issues they are addressing today and on the future regulatory framework.


What topics will be covered?

You can determine the regulatory and policy topics to be covered – through our survey. Suggested topics so far include:

  • Future scope of universal service obligation
  • Sustainability and financing mechanisms
  • Assessing affordability and price elasticity
  • Cost allocation for USO net cost calculations
  • Regulatory risks arising from future environmental regulation
