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.
