European Community - Directives. Article 7(2) of Parliament and Council Directive (EC) 97-67 ' on common rules for the development of the internal market of Community postal services and the improvement of quality of service' fell to be interpreted as allowing member states to reserve cross-border mail to the universal postal service provider only in so far as they established either: that, in the absence of such a reservation, achievement of that universal service would be precluded; or that that reservation was necessary to enable that service to be carried out under economically acceptable conditions.
