ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: The Department of Energy (‘‘DOE’’) today publishes this final rule to adjust DOE’s civil monetary penalties (‘‘CMPs’’) for inflation as mandated by the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996. This rule adjusts CMPs within the jurisdiction of DOE to the maximum extent allowed by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990, as amended by the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background II. Method of Calculation III. Summary of Final Rule IV. Final Rulemaking V. Regulatory Review I. Background In order to preserve the deterrent effect of civil penalties and foster compliance with the law, the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990, 28 U.S.C. 2461 note, as amended by the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104– 134) (‘‘the Act’’), requires Federal agencies to regularly adjust each CMP provided by law within the jurisdiction of the agency. Also, the Act in part requires each agency to make further adjustments at least once every four years. The Act provides that any increase in a CMP due to the calculated inflation adjustments shall apply only to violations that occur after the date the increase takes effect and states that the initial inflation adjustment may not exceed 10 percent of the existing penalty. II. Method of Calculation Under the Act, the inflation adjustment for each applicable CMP is determined by increasing the maximum civil penalty amount per violation by the cost-of-living adjustment. The ‘‘costof-living’’ adjustment is defined as the amount by which the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the month of June of the calendar year preceding the adjustment exceeds the CPI for the month of June of the year in which the amount of such civil penalty was last set or adjusted pursuant to law. Any calculated increase under this adjustment is rounded to the nearest— (1) Multiple of $10 in the case of penalties less than or equal to $100; (2) Multiple of $100 in the case of penalties greater than $100 but less than or equal to $1,000; (3) Multiple of $1000 in the case of penalties greater than $1000 but less than or equal to $10,000; E:\FR\FM\14DER1.SGM 14DER1
