CC consults on postal price control appeal rules

22 Feb 2012


The Competition Commission (CC) is consulting on draft rules setting out how it will deal with appeals against decisions made by Ofcom on postal service price controls.


The Postal Services Act 2011 provides a right of appeal to the CC against price control decisions made by Ofcom in relation to postal services and permits the CC to make rules about the making, conduct and disposal of such appeals. 

The draft rules are published here.

Responses from interested parties are invited by 21 March 2012 and should be made in writing either by email or to:

Jennifer Archer
Competition Commission
Victoria House
Southampton Row
LONDON

The CC will publish responses to the consultation.
