Administrative (Penal) Enforcement

In combating crime, the government increasingly employs the use of administrative law alongside criminal law. Some legal areas, though positioned outside of criminal law, involve similar procedures (such as violations of cartel prohibitions). Administrative authorities possess preventive and punitive measures to influence compliance with legislation and regulations.

While administrative (penal) enforcement doesn’t entail criminal prosecution, its consequences should not be underestimated. Administrative bodies have a range of sanctions at their disposal for violations or actions contrary to specific laws. These include revoking permits, applying administrative coercion, imposing orders subject to periodic penalty payments, and, notably, imposing administrative fines. Such government intervention typically has significant repercussions for individuals or companies.
