Or. Admin. R. 603-057-0420 - Civil Penalty Determination for Failure to Comply with Confidentiality Agreement

When the Department has determined that a violation of 603-057-0417 has occurred the Director shall calculate the amount of the civil penalty to be assessed utilizing the formula: BN+(0.1xBN) (T+D) = Penalty Amount where:

(1) B = Base fine, the primary fine for violating the confidentiality agreement. This base amount is set at $2,000
(2) N = Number of times, including the current violative act, that the person has been determined by the Department to have committed this violative act.
(3) T = Preventability of violation and whether negligence or misconduct was involved. T will be weighted from 0 to 7 in the following way:
(a) 0 = information is insufficient to make any finding;
(b) 3 = the person's actions determined to be violative were reasonably avoidable;
(c) 7 = the person's actions determined to be violative were flagrant.
(4) D = Direct release of confidential information. D will be weighted from 0 to 5 in the following way:
(a) 0 = information is insufficient to make any finding;
(b) 1 = information protected under 603-057-0417 was not directly released, but the information released was sufficient to allow a reasonable determination of the protected information;
(c) 3 = either the identity of the owner or lessee of a specific property, or the address of the property itself where a pesticide had been applied was directly released;
(d) 5 = both the identity of the owner or lessee of a specific property and the address of the property itself where a pesticide had been applied was directly released.
