UPU and CEPT agree to work together

25.04.2013 - The European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) and the UPU have agreed to work together on issues of technical cooperation and share more information on regulatory issues.

Ulrich Dammann, co-president of CEPT, a European intergovernmental organization and restricted union of the UPU, and Bishar A. Hussein, director general of the UPU, signed a memorandum of understanding to this effect at UPU headquarters on 25 April 2013.
CEPT already participates in the UPU’s work, particularly through its European Committee for Postal Regulation (CERP). It has supported the joint implementation of UPU regional development plans and provided expertise in seminars for regulators in the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).
The MOU establishes a cooperation framework between the two parties in areas of common interest, such as the universal postal service obligation and postal regulation and policy.
CEPT and the UPU will promote and exchange best practices among countries and restricted unions. They will cooperate in specialized studies and on projects within their respective fields.
While solutions can differ, regulatory issues are often the same in various parts of the world, says Dammann. That includes getting rid of inefficient structures that hinder postal development, setting up an independent regulator to oversee the market and ensuring that the postal operator has the right tools to increase its ability to finance itself.
“European regulators are eager to share their experience and help countries from having to reinvent the wheel,” says Dammann. “Our goal is to give a better service to the public using competitive and legal bases.”
