Legal compliance

Sources of legal expertise

Farm managers can only work effectively by knowing and applying the applicable legislation.

This requires regular monitoring of changes in legislation, for example through the use of specialised publications and sources of information on, inter alia, employee rights, occupational health and safety, environmental protection and food safety. It is possible to find out more about the legal acts in force for agriculture in Poland at this address.

Farmers’ organisations, as well as legal advice offices, can also provide such information.

The regulations on support for farmers through subsidies are important for the financial stability of farms, so it is worth knowing them in detail. In order to receive subsidies, farmers must comply with cross-compliance rules. Details of these requirements can be found here and here.
