Problematyka pojęcia sytuacji kryzysowej na gruncie ustawy z dnia 26 kwietnia 2007 r. o zarządzaniu kryzysowym
The concept of a crisis situation under the Act of 26 April 2007 on crisis management
Languages of publication
The term “crisis situation”, often used in the literature, wasn’t a legal term until the Act of 26 April 2007 on crisis management has been passed. In the original text of the act the crisis situation was understood as a situation which is a consequence of the threat and thus leads to breaking or considerable violation of the social ties and simultaneously to the serious disturbance in the functioning of public institutions to such extent that the means necessary to safeguard or restore security do not justify the introduction of any of the extraordinary measures referred to in Article 228 of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland. However the above definition was abolished by the Constitutional Tribunal and changed by the Act of 17 July 2009. At present, the crisis situation means a situation that impacts negatively on the safety of people, property of large sizes or the environment, producing significant restrictions on the operation of the competent authorities of public administration due to the inadequacy of the possessed capabilities and resources.
