The application of international law in the Polish legal order is authorized not only by the Constitution but also by various kinds of references contained in particular statutes or governmental regulations. The Council of Ministers may conclude agreements of an executive nature. A particular minister may also enter into such agreements, but will need the consent of the Council of Ministers. Those agreements do not require ratification of the President or any involvement of the Parliament in the treaty-making process. The position of a treaty within the Polish legal order depends on the procedure of its conclusion. For these purposes treaties can be divided into ratified and non-ratified treaties.
