    Thailand Post launches world’s first regulated postal authority

    BANGKOK, 31 May 2019 (NNT) - Thailand Post has upgraded its air mail delivery system and launch the world’s first regulated postal authority which meets the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)’s standard.


    Thailand Post President Samorn Therdthamphiboon said Thailand Post had requested a certificate for air mail transport services to upgrade the Suvarnabhumi Postal Center to the world’s first regulated postal authority from the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT). The mail center is in accordance with requirements prescribed by the ICAO.


    Entry and exit from the building must be controlled with a fingerprint scanning system for identification. All operating staff must go through a body search with a metal detector. Thirty-six CCTV cameras have been installed, plus security guards are on patrol around the clock.


    There are also postal security measures such as recording senders at every post office nationwide. Another measure involves mail inspection using a two-dimensional x-ray machine three times to detect hazardous substances.


    Certification from the regulated postal authority will help build confidence in terms of security standards for airlines and keep them free from harmful materials and illegal items. Senders who violate the rules will be punished with imprisonment not exceeding two years and a fine not exceeding 80,000 baht or both.


    Thailand Post will expand the establishment of regulated postal authority to international airports in the regions including Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phuket, Hat Yai and Udon Thani.

    I do not get many letters from the UK but at least half never arrive and local mail delivered to my house often arrives having been opened before hand.
