The Universal Postal Union (Union Postal Universelle) was created in 1874 and is located in Berne, Switzerland. It is the second-oldest international organization in the world. The purpose of the UPU is to provide a primary forum for the postal service sector and to ensure that a network of up-to-date services is provided. Its website provides information about the structure and role of the organisation and makes available its documentation and publications. A terminology database, Termpost, provides a multilingual vocabulary relating to postal services. Part of the site is for member states only. The site is available in French or English and many of the documents that it contains are also in Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese.
