We would like to inform that in accordance with art. 40 of the Act of June 14, 1960, the Administrative Code (consolidated text, Journal of Laws of 2017, item 1257), requests to fill in the deficiencies in the application will be issued only to the party, and when the party acts through a representative - to that representative. It means that if an application is submitted on behalf of a party without a proper power of attorney, the authority will send a request to the party (company) to fill in the gaps (through the postal operator - by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt).
