Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Act 2008

Section 65: Publication of enforcement action

169.This section requires that an order granting a regulator any alternative civil sanctioning power under this Part ensures that a regulator must publish, from time to time, reports specifying the cases in which one of the new civil sanctions under Part 3 of the Act has been imposed, where a person has discharged their liability to a fixed monetary penalty under section 40 or where an undertaking is accepted under section 43. The reports should not list those cases where civil sanctions have been overturned on appeal. Further, the reports may not need to list certain cases where the Minister thinks it inappropriate for such cases to be publicised, for example, for data protection reasons.
