If a company is found to have breached its conditions, our compliance officers take enforcement and other actions including:

  • prosecution for the most serious offences;
  • issuing fines;
  • issuing official cautions; and
  • negotiating practical solutions

Our compliance policy and associated guidelines provide information about how we go about our work and help to guide the work of our compliance officers.
