The European Regulators Group for Postal Services (ERGP) held its first Plenary meeting for 2020 online, under the chairmanship of Dr. Spyros Pantelis, Vice-Chair of Hellenic Telecommunications and Post Commission (EETT),

The Plenary discussed the ERGP’s Draft Work Program for 2021, which was developed by taking into account the three strategic pillars of the ERGP Medium Term Strategy 2020-2022: (1) revisiting the postal sector; (2) promoting a competitive EU postal single market and (3) empowering endusers.

"Mr Spyros Pantelis (EETT) & Mr João Cadete de Matos (ANACOM) together with ERGP teams did a great work to progress the ERGP works" said Jack Hamande

The Draft 2021 Work Program focuses on providing input to the European Commission’s future Postal Services Directive (PSD), which was last revised in 2008 while, since then, the postal sector has undergone major changes. Following the ERGP report of 2020, the ERGP plans to provide in 2021 a more comprehensive report, including statistical data regarding the operational and economic effects of the pandemic on postal services.

"The Work Program 2021 will cover major issues to address ! "

The Plenary approved the following draft reports that will be submitted for public consultation, from 7 July until 25 September 2020: the Draft Report exploring the possible definitions in the postal sector – 2 ERGP PL I (20) 15 Press Release PL I ERGP PL I (20) 7 and the Draft ERGP Report on key consumer issues - ERGP PL I (20) 8.
