The paper focuses on implementation of the Common Agriculture Policy’s mechanisms by the polish Agencies of payments during the period of the accession of Poland to the UE, particularly on the giuridic status, structure, administrative functions of both of the Agencies. The last part of the paper takes into consideration the evaluation of the competences of Agencies during one year after the accession of Poland to the UE. The paper does not focus on all questions conected with the general problems of functioning of the Agencies. One of the specific features of the contemporary agriculture indicated by a doctrine is an extension of the group of pubblic subjects involved in the administration of agriculture. The administration of agriculture operates not only in the process of the fundation of the new administrative structures but first of all in the modification of the existing structures to aim at the Common Agricultural Policy. In this process partecipate specific state authorities like the Agency of the Agricultural Market and the Agency of the Restructurization and Modernization of the Agriculture, which became the agencies of payments.
The polish Agencies realise the state’s functions in the agriculture, first of all they link polish agriculure ambit with the Common Arigultural Policy. Those subjects had existed before Poland accession to the UEthe Agency of the Restructurisation and Modernization of the Agriculture’s status was regulated in 1993, invence the Agency of the Agricultural Market was created in 1996. For the adaptation on the european standards both of agencies had to modificate their comptences, and during this proceedings they met a lot of difficulties.
