Authorised Postal Service Providers
Under the postal legislation now in force, specifically Section 38(1) of the Communications Regulation (Postal Services) Act 2011 (“the 2011 Act”), there is a legal obligation on any person who is providing or intending to provide a postal service to notify ComReg, as all “postal service providers” require authorisation by ComReg.
It is an offence for anyone providing a “postal service” to fail to notify ComReg of this, or to make a false or misleading declaration to ComReg.
According to the 2011 Act, “postal services” are services involving the clearance, sorting, transport and distribution of postal packets. The two distinguishing features of a “postal packet” are that it is addressed and that it has been accepted or intended for transmission by post.
Information on postal service authorisations, including information on how to obtain a Postal Service Authorisation is available on comreg.ie.
