La Poste

Resale of postage stamps for franking: the Autorité rejects the complaint of Culture Presse against La Poste and for the first time makes use of the procedure of dismissal due to lack of priority.

The Autorité de la concurrence today rejected Culture Presse's complaint concerning an alleged abuse of a dominant position by La Poste in the sector of the resale of postage stamps for franking, due to lack of priority.

By this decision, the Autorité issued a dismissal decision due to lack of priority for the first time since the transposition into French law of Ordinance 2021-649 of 26 May 2021 on the transposition of Directive (EU) 2019/1 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2018 to empower the competition authorities of the Member States to be more effective enforcers and to ensure the proper functioning of the internal market, known as the "ECN+ Directive".
