Default The State of the WNS and of UPU Philatelic Circulars - 2017

Even if the WADP Numbering System (WNS) and the associated database is a a
very expensive endeavor, that costs the participating postal administrations
millions of Swiss Francs, its large holes make it improper for the
identification of illegal stamps, the very reason for which it was initially

The IB - UPU Philatelic Circulars 2003 - 2016, the only identification tool
for illegal stamps worldwide, aren't accessible anymore on the UPU site
without a password, what made them unusable for the worldwide stamp

The proliferation of illegal stamps continues meanwhile unhindered. Learn
more about the actual situation from our new page:
