The MCA withdraws Gazelle Couriers Ltd authorisation to operate

The MCA is publishing the following legal notice to Gazelle Couriers Ltd.

"In accordance with Article 31 of the Malta Communications Authority Act (Cap 418) the MCA is withdrawing the General Authorisation granted to Gazelle Couriers Limited to provide Postal Services outside the scope of the Universal Service.  The MCA attempted unsuccessfully to communicate with the company, which appears to be dormant, in order to regularise its position with regard to reporting obligations.  The company is therefore being struck off the Register of Authorised Undertakings providing Postal Services."

The Malta Communications Authority’s (MCA) is responsible for monitoring the markets of Telecommunications, Postal and eCommerce with the mandate to sustain a healthy and competitive composition of such markets.

A register is managed by the MCA, listing undertakings which are authorised to operate within the electronic communications and postal service markets within the country.

The MCA works to ensure that operators which have been granted a general authorisation, are still functional and providing appropriate services.

Therefore where it results that an authorised undertaking is found to be dormant or operating without a general authorisation, the MCA intervenes accordingly.
