International cooperation

In the area of postal services the Agency collaborates with several international organizations and institutions. It attends professional conferences on postal services and works together with European regulatory bodies. The Agency's experts actively participate in numerous international bodies. Below are a few of the most important international institutions:



ERGP (European Regulators Group for Postal Services) is the European group of regulatory bodies for postal services, funded by the European Commission at the end of 2010. The founding meeting was on 1 December 2010.

The Decision of the European Commission on establishing the European Regulators Group for Postal Services was published in the Official Journal of the European Union - 2010/C217/07.

The legal foundation for establishing this body is in the Postal Directive 97/67/ES, which includes the requirement that member states must appoint one or more independent regulatory bodies in postal services. They must operate towards developing a single European postal market, which requires cooperation and organization of a joint working body. Several project groups operate under EGRP, with the Agency actively participating in them. The programme for the year 2020 is performed in X working groups.

  • ERGP Regulatory Framework WG,
  • ERGP Cross Border parcel delivery WG,
  • ERGP Consumers and Market Indicators WG,
  • ERGP Access WG and
  • ERGP Regulatory tools WG.



CERP , the European Committee for Postal Regulation, was reformed into two working groups since the foundation of the ERGP.

  • WG UPU, the Universal Postal Union, and
  • WG Policy.



UPU  is the Universal Postal Union. The Agency participates in the activities of the international office of the Union by filling out questionnaires and preparing opinions, and takes part in discussions on the future of the sector at the international level.

The Agency's representatives also participate at the Universal Postal Union Congresses. The next one will take place in 2020 in Abidjan in Côte d’Ivoire.



CEN , the European Committee for Standardization hosts about 300 technical committees. One of them is TC331, which focuses on preparing standardized documents pertaining to postal activities.
