Niezależny organ regulacyjny na przykładzie sektora energetycznego
Independent regulatory executive on example of energy sector
New market-oriented regulation for network industries requires an active national regulatory authority which is independent from the influence of market players as well as from day-to-day governmental interference. The domestic regulatory authorities need to be legally and functionally separate from any other public or private entity; moreover, their employees as well as decision makers need to act independently of the interests of any particular market player, any government body, or any other public or private entity. For this reason, the national regulatory authorities need to have legal, personnel, and budgetary autonomy as well as appropriate human and financial resources and independent management.
Third legislative package proposed by the Commission is about to strengthen national regulatory agencies giving them independence of the legal person and a budgetary autonomy. Further on propositions of the package clear up the competencies of national regulators in the way that they should exercise monitoring of implementation of directives on energy liberalization, analyze investments plans of transmission network operators, observe for transparency the market and competition and protect consumers. All these measures aim to equip regulators with legal, functional and financial independence from the market players and from the government authorities.

Wpłaty wkładu na rachunku bankowym na rzecz osoby nieurprawnionej – problematyczna zmiana linii orzeczniczej
Withdrawal of funds from a bank account by an unauthorised person – problematic changes in mainstream jurisprudence
The article constitutes the second part of analysis on the problem of ramifications of funds withdrawal from a bank account by an unauthorised person from the point of view of Polish jurisprudence. The previous article reconstructed the mainstream point of view on this problem which is based on general rules applicable to contractual relationships. In this article, the author analyzes particular recent court rulings which considerably deviate from the mainstream jurisprudence.
Firstly, the article provides for detailed description of the ruling in which the Supreme Court classifies allowing for withdrawal by an unauthorised person as a breach of contract for maintenance of a bank account. The Supreme Court tried to construct claim for damages for breach of contract on the basis of general prudential rules applicable for banks.
Furthermore, in recent rulings, the courts, including, notably, the Supreme Court, tend to transfer legal ramifications of withdrawals originated by an unauthorised person from the area of bilateral contractual relationship between the bank and its client to the area of torts. Often such endeavors are made purely for utilitarian reasons, namely, to assure the client (usually acting as a consumer) enforceability of claims (e.g. to avoid lapse of applicable limitation period). The article includes the detailed analysis of two court rulings in which the Supreme Court qualified withdrawals made by unauthorised persons as damages incurred by banks’ clients as a result of torts.
