Administrative Monetary Penalties (AMPs) are fines or penalties that can be imposed by the C-NLOPB in relation to incidences of non-compliance with legislation, regulations, permits, licences, certificate conditions, or decisions or orders. AMPs are intended to be a remedial compliance measure (regulatory), as opposed to a punitive measure (criminal).
Further information can be found in the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations and Administrative Monetary Penalty Guidelines.
