What is an order subject to a penalty?

An order subject to a penalty is a remedial sanction. It may be imposed by the Director General of Statistics in the event of failure to provide CBS with the requested data, or failure to do so in time or in full. The purpose of a remedial sanction is to put an end to a particular violation and restore the lawful situation. In the case of CBS, this means that the requested data are eventually submitted. A period of two weeks is set for submitting the data. If you send in the data within two weeks, you will not have to pay a penalty. This two-week period is referred to as the period of grace. After the expiry of the period of grace, a daily penalty will be imposed. This entails the obligation to pay a sum of money.
