On October 27, 2021, Board of Directors Resolution Nº 00019-2021-OEFA/CD was published in the Official Gazette "El Peruano", amending Articles 39 and 40 of the OEFA's Regulation of Administrative Measures (RMA), adopted by Board of Directors Resolution Nº 007-2015-OEFA/CD.


Now Article 39 (Nature of the Infringement) of the RMA refers to non-compliance with a "requirement on [the] environmental management instrument" and no longer to a "requirement to update an environmental management instrument" thus making the typification broader.


Article 40 of the RMA has changed the ceilings of the fines for non-compliance with administrative measures.


Failure to comply with an environmental management instrument requirement constitutes a minor administrative infringement, punishable with a fine of up to one hundred (100) Tax Units (UITS).


Failure to comply with a specific mandate constitutes a serious administrative infringement, punishable with a fine of up to 1,400 UITS (previously the limit was 100 UITS).


Finally, failure to comply with a preventive measure constitutes a very serious administrative infringement, punishable with a fine of up to 4,000 UITS (previously the limit was 1,000 UITS)................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
