Tariffs of the universal service provider

The universal service provider is subject to a number of tariff obligations. bpost has been initially designated by law as universal service provider until 31 December 2018. bpost will then continue to provide the universal service on the basis of a management contract concluded with the State for a period of five years, i.e. until 31 December 2023. These tariffs have to be affordable, cost-oriented, transparent, non-discriminatory and identical throughout the entire territory.

BIPT monitors these and other obligations the universal service provider has to meet.
