Terminal dues and transit charges 2014–2017 cycle

Both the Postal Operations Council (POC) and the Council of Administration (CA) are involved in the development of a single terminal dues system for the 2018-2021 cycle.

The POC Letter Post Remuneration Group manages the operational and financial dimension of the process, studying the cost of handling inbound mail as a percentage of domestic tariffs and the impact of the new terminal dues system on markets and designated operators. 

The CA Governance Issues on Remuneration Group manages the political and regulatory dimensions of the process. This group’s work focuses on ensuring universal service and the postal network’s integrity and how countries will transition to the proposed target system.
