|Title: ●Civil Penalty Inflation Adjustment Act Implementation|
On November 2, 2015, the President signed into law the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015, which further amended the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990, to improve the effectiveness of civil monetary penalties and to maintain their deterrent effect. Each Federal agency is now required to publish by interim final rule, a catch-up adjustment, effective by August 1, 2016. This rule will amend 6 CFR part 27; 8 CFR parts 270, 274a, and 280; 33 CFR part 27; and 49 CFR part 1503, to reflect the statutory maximum and, in some cases, minimum, civil penalties that can be assessed under each of EPA's enforcement authorities.
