Dziennik Ustaw

Front page of Dziennik Ustaw (2006).

Dziennik Ustaw or Dziennik Ustaw Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej (English: Journal of Laws of the Republic of Poland, abbreviated Dz. U.) is the most important Polish publication of legal acts. It is the only official source of law for promulgation of Polish laws. The publication of this journal is solely the responsibility of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland. 'Dziennik Ustaw' traces its history to the 1918 'Dziennik Praw Królestwa Polskiego' (English: Journal of Laws of the Kingdom of Poland) and has changed its name several times during its existence.

According to Article 122 of the Constitution of Poland of 1997, The President of the Republic shall sign a bill within 21 days of its submission and shall order its promulgation in the Journal of Laws of the Republic of Poland (Dziennik Ustaw)[1]. The matter is further regulated by articles 87 and 234 of the constitution, as well as by the Article 9 of the Act on Publishing Normative Acts and Several Other Legal Acts of 2000. The Dziennik Ustaw is to include such documents as:

  • Constitution
