Prohibitions. Items not admitted.

Prohibitions (country specific)

According to the UPU's rules and regulations (Article 19 of the UPU Convention), certain items are either prohibited or restricted within the international mail flow. With the cooperation of its member countries, the UPU regularly updates its CDS country-specific list of prohibitions and restrictions, which serves as compendium for Article 19.1.3 of the UPU Convention.

Items not admitted (UPU)

The UPU also provides information about items that are not admitted in all categories of postal items, as well as dangerous goods (Articles 19.2 and 19.3 of the UPU Convention), under "Items not admitted". Finally, in this same section, historical information can be found (2007 List of Prohibited Articles).
