Licence for postal services: transfer

A transfer of the licence for postal services granted in accordance with Section 6 of the Postal Act (PostG) requires the prior consent of the competent authority.

The transfer shall be a failure if facts justify the assumption that:

  1. the applicant does not have the necessary capacity, reliability or expertise to exercise the licence rights;
  2. the commencement of a licensed activity would jeopardise public security or public order,
  3. the applicant does not insignificantly underperform the essential working conditions which are common in the licensed sector.
