Bpost is charged with the universal postal service until 31 December 2018, in accordance with the Act of 21 March 1991 on the reform of certain economic public companies (Art. 144octies, § 1). The Act provides for an open procedure for the designation of the universal postal service provider as from 1 January 2019. BIPT organises a public consultation, in the form of a questionnaire, aimed at collecting the opinions of all stakeholders on the universal postal service as a whole. Besides, it also aims at collecting any useful information for the realisation of the designation procedure and the achievement of universal service objectives. The main topics covered by the consultation are the following: - societal interest and content of the US; - users' behaviour (in particular in terms of traffic volumes); - conditions (including, but not only, tariff conditions) in which an operator could show his interest to provide the US, etc.
