Today, the Department of Energy issued Guidance on the Imposition of Civil Penalties for Violations of EPCA Standards and Certification Obligations.  As explained in the Guidance, the Department’s penalty policy is intended to advance three goals:  (1) to deter future violations; (2) to ensure consistency and equity in the assessment of penalties; and (3) to encourage complete and timely resolution of any instances of non-compliance.   The Department also sets forth its basic approach to the imposition of penalties for violations of DOE’s standards and certification requirements.  A complete version of the Guidance is available here.
