Planned amendments in the Polish Code of Civil Procedure – crucial changes for entrepreneurs

The amendment to the Polish Code of Civil Procedure was passed by the Parliament on July 4, 2019. It is currently awaiting the President’s signature. The draft amendment to the Code of Civil Procedure provides for numerous changes to the current form of civil procedure, especially when it comes to regulations concerning entrepreneurs. The new law, created at the initiative of the Ministry of Justice, is to restore separate proceedings in commercial cases, removed from the Code in 2012. The draft provides for the introduction of a new section entitled “Proceedings in commercial cases”. It is to deal with civil matters between entrepreneurs in the scope of their business activity.

The first change introduced by this amendment will be the so-called preparatory proceedings – obligatory and less formal meetings taking place outside the courtroom to resolve the dispute at an early stage. Their aim is to get the parties to reconciliation and settlement, and the court chairman has the task of pointing out to the parties the ways and effects of the out-of-court resolution of the dispute. These meetings should be considered an attempt to introduce the idea of arbitration to the Polish civil procedure.
