Act 40 of 2001 on communications (Hkt.) regulated in a unified way the postal and communications (together “telecommunications” for the purposes of Hkt.) services and activities. However, such a gap in time arose between the development of postal and telecommunications activities which required widely differing regulations. For this purpose the postal activity was removed from the scope of Act 100 of 2003 on electronic communications (Eht.) and was regulated in the dedicated Act 101 of 2003 on the post which significantly improved transparency.
To ensure continuity the new dedicated Post Act applied to the greatest possible extent the regulations of the Act on communications which had proved to be correct.
The following laws provide for the licensing and notification processes connected with the market entry of postal service providers, the related registers kept by the authority, supervision of postal services and postal service providers. The authority issues and keeps a register of licenses for postal stamp experts on the basis of these laws and licenses postal equipment on the basis of examinations.
