have occurred, or the greater the degree of risk to people or 
property that did occur as a result of the contravention or 
failure to comply, or the fact that an accident did occur, the 
higher the penalty should be;

administrative penalty the higher the penalty should be;

contravention or failure to comply, the higher the penalty 
should be.
Limitation period
8   An administrative penalty may be imposed only within 6 months of 
the date the Registrar first becomes aware of the contravention of or 
failure to comply with Part 6.1 of the Act or the regulation in respect of 
which the administrative penalty is to be imposed.
