Notion and Recognition of Foreign Administrative Acts in Poland

Part of the Ius Comparatum - Global Studies in Comparative Law book series (GSCL, volume 10)


The subject of enforcement of foreign administrative acts has not been undertaken in Poland. Only some elements have been identified when discussing the problems of global administrative law, international administrative acts or EU administrative law. As it has been repeatedly raised above Polish law has also many gaps in that materia. The increasing importance of application of the international and foreign administrative acts should lead to new solutions in public international law. The European Union has the greatest opportunities and resources for creation of that kind of provisions under condition of the respect of the different forms of administrative activities (e.g. regulatory acts, single-case decisions) and numerous branches of administrative law (e.g. environmental law, construction law or tax law).
