Administrative courts in Poland


 
 

The administrative court system in Poland is of two instances and comprises province administrative courts and the Supreme Administrative Court.

Administrative courts exercise control over administrative activity including decisions and certain administrative provisions (e.g. administrative permits), local laws (e.g. decisions approving local zoning plans) and other acts or state administrative activities concerning powers or obligations arising from law (e.g. entries in land description records). Administrative courts also hear complaints against inactivity of administrative authorities.

The Constitutional Tribunal is an independent body which hears only constitutional issues.
