RESOLUTION NO. 10

GUIDELINES FOR RATING FINES
 

RESOLVED, as it is hereby resolved, that the following are the guidelines for rating
fines as the Pollution Adjudication Board has the power to impose penalties of fine
pursuant to Section 9 of P.D. No. 984; to fix various fines within the limits already
marked out by law; and to restrict the discretion of the hearing officer in the gradation of
the maximum fine.

For various degrees of violations, the PAB suggests the following factors to be considered and should be applied independently to water pollution or air pollution, in such a way that a company polluting both water and air environment should pay the total fine or the water pollution fine plus air pollution fines plus other fines.
