Who needs Authorisation?

The postal services market in Ireland is fully open to competition.

The Communications Regulation (Postal Services) Act 2011 (“the 2011 Act”) requires that any person who is providing or intending to provide a postal service shall, before doing so, make a notification to ComReg.

It is a criminal offence to fail to make a notification or to make a notification or a declaration which is false or misleading in any material respect and the offender is liable on summary conviction to a “class A” fine.
