This two-day training provides attendees with:

  • a historical perspective of European postal regulation;
  • a clear overview of regulatory concepts, issues, and developments in the postal and parcel delivery sector;
  • how the concept of universal service is predominant in postal regulation and how this concept has developed over time, reflecting changing market realities;
  • an insight into the possibilities of competition in the postal sector, comparing different forms of access and how these are regulated;
  • the importance of employee-related issues and labour regulation in the postal sector;
  • as mail volumes fall significantly, a review of the growing parcel delivery sector and how e-commerce is being regulated;
  • the application of competition law in the sector, including state aid and abuse cases; and
  • a look into the future of regulation in the sector, covering such issues as possible changes in the scope and definition of universal service, and the regulation of drones.


This class will be of particular interest to:

  • seasoned regulatory experts who have become specialised in a specific regulatory area but who wish to refresh their understanding of the broader range of regulatory issues, or
  • individuals who have recently moved into a regulatory position and wish to acquire a rapid grasp of the key debates, or
  • regulatory experts who wish to reflect on regulatory trends in industry.

This seminar is not designed for experts who already have a broad range of regulatory experience.


The class is held at the Thon Hotel EU in Brussels.
