    Beginning with August 14, 2005, American documents to be used for legal purposes in Poland (e.g. birth, marriage and death certificates; extracts from commercial registers and other registers; patents; court rulings, notarial acts including powers of attorney and attestations of signatures; academic diplomas issued by public institutions etc.) must bear the "Apostille" (as provided by the Hague Convention) issued by the Office of the Secretary of State, the Department of State or the Department of Licensing. Only documents bearing the "Apostille" will be accepted in Poland. They do not require additional authentication by the Polish Consulate. However, the Convention does not apply either to documents executed by diplomatic or consular agents or to administrative documents dealing directly with commercial or customs operations (e.g., certificates of origin or import or export licenses).
