If the Panel finds an industry member to be in breach of one or more of the Senet Enforceable Commitments, it may impose one or more of the following sanctions:

1. Adverse publicity by virtue of publication of the decision
2. A monetary penalty on the relevant industry member up to a maximum of £50,000 for any one breach of the Senet Enforceable Commitments, ordinarily payable within 14 days

2. The degree of culpability of the industry member, including having regard to its size, resources and revenue, and steps taken by them to avoid the breach
3. Benefits to the industry member from the breach, including revenue likely to have been derived from the breach
4. Steps taken by the industry member to avoid repetition of the breach
5. The industry member’s record of previous compliance
6. The industry member’s co-operation with and conduct during the investigation
