What happens if I don’t comply?

Persistent non-compliance will be addressed through local authority or SEPA duty of care enforcement procedures (dependent upon the regulating authority). Any person who fails without reasonable excuse to comply with the duties imposed above shall be liable:

  • (a) on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum (£10,000); and
  • (b) on conviction on indictment, to an unlimited fine.
