Languages of publication
This gloss concerns primarily the issue of delivery of letters by electronic means of communication. The author indicates the requirements resulting from the currently applicable provisions of law necessary to apply this form, the effects of its application and the mutual relationship of this procedural institution and the traditional form. The study also takes into account the broadly understood context of these regulations, ranging from the institution of appeal in general, through the importance of service and determination of the legal consequences it entails, to the obligations of a public administration authority in this respect and the impact on the situation of a party to proceedings. The author shares the view of the WSA in Łódź, according to which «an attempt to deliver a decision in a traditional way, i.e. by post, when the addressee requests electronic delivery, results in the fact that the authority cannot rely on the fiction of delivery due to failure to collect the parcel (twice advised parcel) resulting from art. 44 § 4 of the Code of Administrative Procedure.» and presents arguments in support of this thesis.
