The Commentary on the Postal Law has been published
C.H Beck has published a commentary on the Postal Law, edited by M. Chołodecki, A. Piszcz and T. Skoczny (Series: Beck's Comments, Warsaw 2018, pp. 1136). This is the first comprehensive commentary on the Postal Law in history. The authors pay particular attention to the principles of operation of the postal market, i.e. its opening to competition and liberalization both in theoretical and practical terms, taking into account the past experience of the postal market under the new regulations. Many of the issues elaborated in the commentary have never been discussed in Polish doctrine. This is yet another publication on the postal market prepared by CARS. The Postal Market Laboratory is currently the leading research center for this market in Poland.
