Poland/ 5.3 Sector specific legislation  

5.3.3 Cultural heritage

The following laws are relevant to the field of cultural heritage:

  • the Act on Museums, 21 November, 1996 (OJ5, p.24, with amendments and annexes);
  • the Act on Protection of Cultural Goods, 15 February, 1962 (OJ 98, p.1 150);
  • the Act on the change of some Laws Defining the Competencies of the National Administration Bodies, 24 July, 1998; and
  • the Act on Provincial Local Authority, 5 June, 1998.

In May 2007, the Parliament accepted a proposal to amend the Act on Museums, which aims to eliminate discrepancies between the Act on Museums and the Act on Organising and Conducting Cultural Activity and to regulate museums that do not have a legal status. The amendment of the Act on Protection of Heritage and the proposal of the Act on Places of National Memory are delayed in the Parliamentary system.
