Inspections and enforcement
Enforcement policy - non compliance
The legislation we enforce is backed up by criminal penalties. This means if you don't comply you could be prosecuted and fined or in the most serious cases, imprisoned. However, we'll deal with breaches of the law proportionately, as set out in our enforcement policy (pdf, 63kb). In the majority of cases, we endeavour to educate and advise businesses to achieve compliance.
