Administrative Procedure Code after the amendments of 2017–2019


The Institute of Legal Sciences Publishing House has published a collective work Administrative Procedure Code after the amendments of 2017–2019, edited by Mateusz Błachucki, PhD, Professor of ILS PAS, and Grzegorz Sibigia, PhD.

The monograph is the result of the inspiring discussion at the conference of the Department of Administrative Law of the ILS PAS devoted to the amendments to the Code of Administrative Procedure that took place between 2017 and 2019. The publication contains the articles and papers submitted after the conference, which have been augmented with the conclusions of the discussion and reworked. The 2017 amendment to the Administrative Law Code was the most serious revision of the Code in over two decades. It not only affected existing norms, but also introduced many new provisions and redacted items. These changes, despite their sweeping range, were introduced extremely hastily, which justifies all the more the need to analyse their rationale and experience in applying the new regulations. In the Introduction, the editors noted: ‘However it might seem that such a fundamental amendment of the Code should stop the legislature from making more amendments for some time, the experience of 2018–2019 has shown that the Code of Administrative Procedure is actually subject to constant changes. Unfortunately, this is not conducive to legal security and has a negative impact on the Code as a systemic regulation of a particular area of law application’. Thus, the publication intends to present and evaluate the detailed amendments to the Code introduced between 2017 and 2019, as well as to analyse the consequences of their entry into force and to formulate postulates for further changes in administrative proceedings. Both the publication and the conference preceding it represent ongoing research conducted at the Department of Administrative Law of the ILS PAS and cooperation with major academic centres and researchers of administrative law from all over Poland. Undoubtedly, this publication will be helpful in solving practical problems connected with the application of provisions of the Code of Administrative Procedure, and it will inspire further research.


The Code of Administrative Procedure is one of the key legal acts in the field of public law. Recent years have seen significant changes in this source of law. The importance of legal regulation of administrative procedure and its bearing on the legal situation of an individual meets with a wide interest of legal doctrine and practice. This is reflected in numerous publications of varied content and size …. Looking at the monograph and its scope, the hitherto achievements and the academic position of its editors, the selection of the team of authors (in particular their academic achievements, and practical experience), I consider the publication of the book edited by Prof. of ILS PAS Dr hab. Mateusz Błachucki and Dr hab. Grzegorz Sibiga as purposeful and fully justified

From a review by Dr hab. Adam Habuda, Prof. of ILS PAS

[Administrative Procedure Code after the amendments of 2017–2019] is relevant to both theory and practice. The book describes these changes in a comprehensive manner, maintaining high scholarly standards. In its pages, both theoreticians and judges of administrative courts provide their voice in the discussion. They often complement each other. In this way the publication constitutes a coherent work. After reading the whole monograph, one can formulate general conclusions on the role and importance of changes introduced in the Code of Administrative Procedure. One may even be tempted, on the basis of the chosen reference area, to make a general assessment of the Polish legislation in recent years.
