Environment (Wales) Act 2016

Combination of sanctions

343.Paragraph 7 restricts the circumstances in which carrier bag regulations may give an administrator powers to impose both types of civil sanction (i.e. fixed monetary penalties and discretionary requirements) in relation to the same kind of breach of the regulations. In particular, if the regulations do confer those powers, they must ensure that the administrator may not serve a notice of intent to impose one kind of civil sanction on a person if it has already imposed the other kind of civil sanction on the person for the same breach.
