COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2018/1263

of 20 September 2018

establishing the forms for the submission of information by parcel delivery service providers pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2018/644 of the European Parliament and of the Council

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2018/644 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 April 2018 on cross-border parcel delivery services (1), and in particular Article 4(4) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Regulation (EU) 2018/644 lays down specific provisions to foster better cross-border parcel delivery services in addition to those laid down in Directive 97/67/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (2). Those provisions concern in particular regulatory oversight related to parcel delivery services and the transparency of tariffs for certain cross-border parcel delivery services.

(2)

Regulation (EU) 2018/644 requires that parcel delivery service providers submit to national regulatory authority of the Member State in which they are established information about themselves using a form established by the Commission.

(3)

Article 4(1) of Regulation (EU) 2018/644 requires submitting information about parcel delivery service provider only once and that they inform the national regulatory authority of any change to that information within 30 days. Article 4(3) of Regulation (EU) 2018/644 requires submitting information about the activities of the parcel delivery service provider every year. It is therefore appropriate to establish two separate forms for submission of that information.

(4)

In order to avoid the double counting of parcels, parcel delivery service providers should, when providing information on the number and turnover of parcels handled over the previous calendar year, indicate whether the parcel delivery services are contracted with the sender or handled on behalf of another parcel delivery service provider. The submission should also include information on whether the parcels are sent to or received from destinations within or outside the Union, as this will have an impact on the steps in the postal delivery chain that are undertaken by that provider.

(5)

Given that the requested information is to be processed by the national regulatory authorities of the Member States and in view of the expertise of those authorities, the forms have been drawn up in close cooperation with the European Regulators Group for Postal Services.

(6)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 21 of Directive 97/67/EC,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The forms for the submission of the information referred to in paragraphs 1 and 3 of Article 4 of Regulation (EU) 2018/644 are set out in Annexes I and II to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 20 September 2018.

For the Commission

The President
