This decision aims at monitoring the compliance with the rules regarding the calculations of the tariff increases for bpost's individual full tariffs for 2015.
Full tariffs are tariffs for products destined for private users (or business users who would not benefit from discount rates for the deposit of bulk products). Full tariffs do not vary according to the volume deposited or the preparation of postal items.
This monitoring takes place by virtue of Article 144ter of the Act of 21 March 1991 on the reform of certain economic public companies (hereafter "the Act of 21 March 1991) as well as Articles 29, 31 and 32 of the Royal Decree of 11 January 2006 implementing Title IV (Reform of the Postal Authorities) of the Act of 21 March 1991 on the reform of certain economic public companies (hereafter "the RD of 11 January 2006").
Following analysis it appears that the increases of full tariffs, suggested by bpost for the year 2015, comply with Article 144ter, § 1, 1°, 2°, 3° and 4° of the Act of 21 March 1991. BIPT therefore does not see any reason to reject the request for a tariff increase, lodged by bpost on 29 August 2014.
