On 15 June 2015 the BEREC Chair, Fátima Barros, and the ERGP Chair, Feliksas Dobrovolskis, had a meeting with the European Commission Vice-President Ansip to discuss the issues related to cross-border parcels, which have negative impact on cross-border e-commerce.

As a result of this meeting BEREC and ERGP established a joint EWG on the subject with a view to examining the possibility for introducing the price transparency and other regulatory means already used by the electronic communications sector into the cross border parcels delivery.

In this context, BEREC and ERGP worked together and adopted, on 3 December and 10 December 2015, respectively, a joint Opinion on price transparency and regulatory oversight of the cross border parcels delivery, taking into account possible regulatory insights from the electronic communications, which has been transmitted with the current letter to the Commission.
