EU Parliament lead Transport & Tourism (TRAN) committee draft report: obligations for all cross-border parcel delivery providers and for online traders 09 May 17 Tomasz Kulinski

A draft report from the rapporteur of the lead European Parliament TRAN committee has proposed amendments to the Commission’s proposed Regulation on cross-border parcel delivery, including:

  • removing the proposed obligations on USPs to provide network access and to publish reference offers; 
  • expanding the scope of the Regulation so that key obligations would now fall on all parcel delivery providers; and
  • adding a new obligation for online traders to provide pre-contractual information to users of their delivery options, prices and complaints processes. 
  • The Committee will vote on the draft report before it will be submitted to the Parliament plenary in summer 2017.
