European Union Affairs Committee           

The European Union Affairs Committee (EAC) plays an important role in gathering regulatory experts of postal operators from the 27 EU countries plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Through plenary meetings, various working groups and monitoring activities, the Committee is a genuine European centre of excellence on postal regulatory affairs. Early awareness and strong engagement in the shaping of the EU regulatory environment enable our members to prudently drive their business agenda.  


The mission of the EAC is to contribute to shaping the European regulatory environment, mitigate the effects of regulation on the postal sector and give Members a voice in the process. As a forum for debate and discussion, the EAC increases understanding about the EU regulatory framework, fosters the exchange of insights and expertise amongst members, provides operators with an important link to EU institutions and initiates lobbying activities on selected regulatory topics. 

The EAC monitors a wide variety of regulatory areas that affect the postal sector through its 7 Working Groups and Monitoring Activities.
