The Act of 21 March 1991 on the reform of some economic public companies tasks BIPT with the publication of a yearly report of the actions it has undertaken in order to verify that postal service providers abide by their obligations. However, considering the limited impact on the postal market of the infractions possibly recorded during monitoring, BIPT decided to cease systematically monitoring the postal service providers and to proceed to monitoring only when a complaint has been submitted. BIPT believes it would be disproportionate to commit resources to monitoring while it has not received any breach notification and consumers do not complain about the situation. Given that BIPT did not receive any complaint in 2016 about omissions or infringements of Article 148bis, §2, of the Act of 21 March 1991 on the reform of some economic public companies, BIPT did not carry out any monitoring in 2016.
