201 Pa. Code § 4012 - Sanctions for Delayed Transcript

(A) The president judge may take disciplinary action against any court reporter, court recorder, or transcriptionist where noncompliance with these Rules impedes the prompt administration of justice, whether by protracted delinquency in a single case or by engaging in a pattern of delinquency in a number of cases.
(B) The Court Administrator shall notify the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania of instances of unreasonable delay in preparing transcripts. The Court Administrator may recommend imposition of sanctions, including disqualification of individual court reporters, court recorders or transcriptionists.
(C) The president judge shall ensure that the number, proficiency and organization of court reporting personnel in any district are adequate to support the full and unrestricted operation of the court. When transcript delay is caused by an insufficient supply of qualified court reporters or other resources, or inefficient management of the court reporting operation, the Supreme Court may direct the president judge to take immediate corrective actions.
(D)An appellate court may enter an order to compel the preparation, filing and transmission of the transcript and may take disciplinary action including contempt of court or reduction of fees when the failure of a court reporter, court recorder, or transcriptionist to complete the transcript within the time imposed by these rules or by court order, delays transmission of the complete record to the appellate court.
