About Postal Operations Council

The next POC session will take place from 16 to 20 October 2017.

The Postal Operations Council (POC) is the technical and operational mind of the UPU and consists of 40 member countries, elected during Congress. The body elects its own chair and meets annually at the UPU’s headquarters in Berne.

The POC’s work programme is geared towards helping Posts modernize and upgrade their postal products and services. It deals with the operational, economic and commercial aspects of the postal business. The body also makes recommendations to member countries on standards for technological, operational or other processes within its competence where uniform practices are necessary.
