The article deals with the procedure for the control of hierarchical conformity of legal norms by the Tribunal. The starting point is the analysis of the differences between the procedures, as a result of a specific type of the subject of control. Then, the basic principles of the procedure contained in the Constitutional Tribunal Act are discussed. The analysis of these principles provides a basis for the description of a preliminary consideration, a hearing before the Tribunal and the stage of rendering a judgment. The different procedural institutions are examined for their compatibility with the subject of the proceedings, i.e. the control of norms. In this respect, the author presents critical comments indicating incompatibility of the existing solutions with the duties to be currently performed by the Constitutional Tribunal and with 'de lege ferenda' propositions. Among the latter, the most important are: drawing up a new procedure for the selection of cases, particularly the selection of constitutional complaints, application of new instruments of hearing procedure in order to facilitate gathering of information by the Tribunal, diversification of the duties of the parties to the proceedings and the use of a written procedure instead of oral hearing.
