The Administrative Court issues a decision concerning the enforcement of the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority's decision

26.01.2010

The Administrative Court of Helsinki has rejected Itella's appeal for
suspending the enforcement of the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority's
decision. The decision by the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority
requires Itella to submit a report on the cost basis of  universal service
products in a manner specified by the Authority - Itella finds that this manner
does not adhere to the postal services legislation. For Itella, this is a
matter of how costs are allocated among newspaper delivery and universal
services for letters, for example. 

Itella has not yet decided upon measures due to the above decision.

The decision now made by the Administrative Court only applies to the
enforcement of the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority's decision. The
actual appeal case remains open and is still being processed by the
Administrative Court.
