List of addresses
The list of addresses, heads and senior officials of postal entities (LAHSO) is designed for UPU member countries, restricted unions and staff of the UPU International Bureau. Access to the list is therefore restricted to those users.
The application was officially launched for use on 10 November 2021. It is compatible with the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers.
Users can access LAHSO through the account they use to log in to the UPU website. Special access rights have been given to authorized individuals to allow them to perform updates in addition to simply viewing the list.
This application has been designed to be dynamic and user friendly, especially for data entry and retrieval by the officially designated LAHSO contact points for each country. The system relies on the assistance and engagement of these contact points, who are invited to make any necessary changes to the list directly in the application.
Individuals with access to the list can now:
- View the contact lists for member countries, restricted unions and the International Bureau
- Access information pertaining to United Nations organizations, the permanent missions to the United Nations Office in Geneva, and the directory of the diplomatic and consular corps in Switzerland, through the links provided
- Export member country data
As of 11 November 2021, the previous version of the address list can no longer be consulted, and access rights for that list are no longer valid.
Contact points for the address list
Contact points and their deputies are responsible for collecting, within their respective authorities, any updates to be made (e.g. changes in persons responsible), inputting those changes in the provided interface, validating them, and ensuring that the published information remains up to date.
To designate or change their contact points, the authorities of UPU member countries are invited to download and complete the form provided below. This form is available in English and French only. Contact point forms, once duly completed and signed by the Head of International Relations or the Director/Secretary General of the authority concerned, are to be sent back to the International Bureau, preferably by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). A document containing practical information related to the designation of contact points is provided below.
For further information, please see the letter that was sent out on the subject, downloadable below.
