Under Chapter 2 "Procedures to be taken before penalties or administrative proceedings are applied" and Chapter 3 "Penalties and administrative proceedings" of Part 9 of the CBB Law, the CBB may impose financial penalties on licensees or listed companies or persons referred to in paragraph (b) of Article (68 bis 1) of the CBB Law and its amendments (in particular Article 129). The CBB shall use judgement and will take into account relevant facts in determining the need to impose financial penalties. Financial penalties are thus normally preceded by the issuance of a written formal notice and/or Direction.
