Review of the regulation of Royal Mail

  • Start: 17 July 2015
  • Status: Closed
  • End: 11 September 2015

On 16 June 2015 we announced a fundamental review of the regulation of Royal Mail. The review is to ensure regulation remains appropriate and sufficient to secure the efficient and financially sustainable provision of the universal postal service.

The review will incorporate our existing work to assess Royal Mail’s efficiency, consider its position within the parcels sector, and assess the company’s potential ability to set wholesale prices in a way that might harm competition. In addition, the review will address the implications of Whistl’s withdrawal, which represents a significant change in the potential level of competition for end-to-end letter delivery.

This document sets out the proposed scope of the review, and asks stakeholders for views and evidence to assist our analysis.
