Chapter V Penalty clause
Where a natural person, a legal person, a non-corporate body with a representative or administrator appointed, a central or local authority (organization), or other organization violates the environmental protection laws or the obligations stated in the Administrative Law of Autonomous Act, or those who are suspended from construction and business operation, or are fined for an amount more than NT$5,000 by the disciplinary institution, the disciplinary institution shall command such natural person, legal person, institution, or group to assign the designated representative or the person responsible for environmental protection to attend environmental protection seminars for one hour to eight hours.
In cases where the institutions, state-run business institutions, high schools and secondary schools, or statutory bodies with over 50% of the fund sponsored by the government have violated the provisions of Paragraphs 1 and 2 of Article 19, the competent authorities shall command them to perform corrective actions before a deadline. If they fail to perform the said corrective actions before the deadline, a fine for an amount of NT$5,000 to NT$15,000 will be levied; also, the designated representative or the person responsible for environmental protection as stated in the preceding paragraph shall attend environmental protection seminars for one hour to eight hours.
The hours of environmental seminar prescribed in this Act and its enforcement shall be determined by the central competent authorities.
The offenders that are commanded by the competent authorities to attend the environmental seminar, but are unable to attend the seminar on time for a legitimate reason, may apply for an extension for one time. Offenders who refuse to take the environmental seminar or have not attended the seminar for the prescribed hours, a disciplinary act will be delivered to the offender who is a natural person, legal person, a non-statutory body with a representative or administrator assigned, the central authorities or local authorities (institution), or other organizations with a fine of NT$5,000 to NT$15,000.
