The "Good Practices of Companies Listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange" introduced in Poland do not consist in imposing on all listed companies an absolute obligation to implement the rules, but introducing them on the basis of the "comply or explain" principle, i.e. apply or explain. It means that the issuer should declare what rules he wants to follow, and if he does not want to apply some rules, explain the reason for the decision.
