PART 21 - CIVIL AND CRIMINAL CONSEQUENCES OF CONTRAVENING CIVIL PENALTY PROVISIONS  

Division 2 - Civil penalty orders  

SECTION 196   COURT MAY MAKE CIVIL PENALTY ORDERS  

196(1)  
This section applies if the Court is satisfied that a person has contravened a civil penalty provision, whether or not the contravention also constitutes an offence because of section 202 .

Note:

Section 220 provides that a certificate by a court that the court has declared a person to have contravened a civil penalty provision is conclusive evidence of the contravention.

196(2)  
The Court is to declare that the person has, by a specified act or omission, contravened that provision in relation to a specified superannuation entity, but need not so declare if such a declaration is already in force under Division 4 .

196(3)  


The Court may also make against the person an order that the person pay to the Commonwealth a monetary penalty of an amount specified in the order that does not exceed 2,400 penalty units.

196(4)  
The Court is not to make an order under subsection (3) unless it is satisfied that the contravention is a serious one.

196(5)  
The Court is not to make an order under subsection (3) if it is satisfied that an Australian court has ordered the person to pay damages in the nature of punitive damages because of the act or omission constituting the contravention.
