January 5th, 2010, Tomasz Rychlicki

The Act of 10 September 2009 on Amending the Law on the Promulgation of Normative Acts and Some Other Legal Acts, published in Journal of Laws (Dziennik Ustaw) of 2009, No 190 item 1473, came into force on 1 January 2010. According to the amendments, the Journal of Laws and the Polish Monitor or normative acts and other legal acts contained in them, including judgments, are made available freely for inspection and to download in the form of an electronic document from the website of the Government Legislative Center. The Minister responsible for informatization will also determine, by a regulation, the technical requirements to be met by electronic documents addressed for the announcement, containing normative acts and other acts, including judgments, taking into account the need to preserve the unity of supplied electronic documents and their possible transformation for the issue of the official journal.
