Major objectives 1. To define the general terms for the provision of a universal postal service (provider and its responsibilities, the service quality, categories of the service, prices, accessibility, etc.).
Short Summary The document defines general terms for the provision of a universal postal service. It also defines the state owned company Poste of Slovenia, as the provider of a universal postal service. Furthermore, it specifies the categories, required quality, prices, accessibility and other aspects of a universal postal service.

Under the section describing the quality of a universal postal service provision, only the dates for the delivery of postal items are defined- one to three days for the inland transport, and 3 to five day for the transport within the EU. For other international shipments, the delivery time depends on the distance, transport connections, and standards and quality of the universal postal service providers of the addressed country.

According to the document, the service must be offered at an affordable price, in coherence with a published pricelist. Under specified conditions, some entities may be entitled to a discount.

As stated, the provider must at a request, enable the use and access to the public postal network to other interested providers. The designated provider may charge the other providers for the use of the network.
