ICSTIS has issued a guide on how it determines an appropriate and proportionate sanction when a service provider is found in breach of the ICSTIS Code of Practice. This guide takes account of the new upper limit for fines and advises of the likely circumstances when this new upper limit may be applied by the Committee on a 'per breach' basis.

The guide in particular makes reference to some of the common aggravating or mitigating factors that the Committee may take into account when setting a fine at either a higher or lower level than they might do for a seemingly similar set of breaches from another service.
