The civil penalty inflation adjustment accounts for one year of inflation spanning from October 2019 to October 2020. Annual inflation adjustments are applied to all Federal agencies' civil penalties and are based on the percent change between the Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers (CPI-U) for the October preceding the date of the adjustment, and the prior year's October CPI-U.
