European Committee of Postal Regulation (CERP)

examines postal regulatory affairs in a European context taking into account the changes in the borderlines between regulatory aspects and operational aspects in this domain. It also assesses the influence of international regulatory policies.

Universal Postal Union (UPU)

is the primary forum for cooperation between postal sector players. It helps to ensure a universal network of up-to-date products and services. In this way, the organization fulfils an advisory, mediating and liaison role, and provides technical assistance where needed. It sets the rules for international mail exchanges and makes recommendations to stimulate growth in mail, parcel and financial services volumes and improve quality of service for customers.

Regional cooperation

The Estonian Competition Authority has very good relations and cooperation with colleagues from neighbouring countries. Often the undertakings are active in many neighbouring countries and authorities are facing similar challenges. Annual meetings take place with Latvian, Lithuanian and Finnish colleagues for discussing postal issues.
