Welcome to POSTRS

Who are we?

The Postal Redress Service (POSTRS) is an independent alternative dispute resolution body, certified by Ofcom.


What do we do?

Our role is to adjudicate disputes between postal operators and their customers when complaints have not been resolved through the operators own procedures.


How does it work?

We will ask both the customer and operator to submit evidence related to the dispute. The evidence will be provided to a legally trained adjudicator who will issue a decision that will become binding on the operator, if the customer accepts the findings. 


How much does it cost?

POSTRS is a free service for consumers.
