In Poland, the rendering of postal services is regulated by the Act of 12 June 2003 – Postal Law (in Polish: Prawo Pocztowe; hereafter the PP Act). The Act determines the conditions governing postal activities and their control as well as the rendering of postal services and the universal postal service. In 2009, the National Regulatory Authority proposed to the Ministry of Infrastructure a number of amendments to the PP Act. The new provisions were to ensure in particular fair conditions for postal operators to compete and for consumers to obtain access to postal services of high quality and at affordable prices. In this context, separate definitions of the different types of postal services were of key importance. The absence of such definitions makes it possible for private operators to classify postal services as carriage services to the detriment of consumer rights. Specific amendments were also to be introduced in light of the recommendations made in 2009 by the European Commission.
