A draft law foreseeing the complete deregulation of the courier service sector by 2013 is expected to be tabled in Parliament in February 2011. The bill was discussed on Tuesday during a meeting chaired by Deputy Infrastructure, Transport and Networks Minister Spyros Vougias.

The draft law, pursuant to a 2008 EU Directive deregulating the currier service sector for parcels, letters and etc that weigh less than 50 grams, affects the bulk of correspondence handled by postal service, considering that a deregulation is already in effect for correspondence weighing more than 50 grams.

Until 2013, when the sector’s deregulation is completed, the under-50 grams correspondence will be handled by Hellenic Post (EL.TA).
