Consultative Committee for Postal Studies was created at the 9th UPU Congress
The Committee was the result of the need for a
technical commission to discuss issues concerning the progress and improvement
of the postal service. The active part of CCPS was its Management Council. CCPS
was supposed to meet at dates fixed by the UPU Congress and function like a
Congress Committee. It is reported that CCPS did not play an effective part
during Congresses. It did meet frequently however, as it did in
To avoid confusion between the CCPS as a permanent body and as a Congress Committee, the 1969 Tokyo Congress abolished CCPS and replaced the Management Council by a Consultative Council for Postal Studies (also CCPS). Now known as the Postal Operations Council, it deals mainly with operational, economic and organizational issues.
