Adjustment of Civil Monetary Penalties for Inflation

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Final regulations.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Education (Department) issues these final 
regulations to adjust the Department's civil monetary penalties (CMPs) 
for inflation. An initial "catch-up'' adjustment was required by the 
Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 
2015 (2015 Act), which amended the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation 
Adjustment Act of 1990 (Inflation Adjustment Act). These final 
regulations provide the 2018 annual inflation adjustments being made to 
the penalty amounts in the Department's final regulations published in 
the Federal Register on April 20, 2017 (2017 final rule).

DATES: These regulations are effective January 15, 2018. The adjusted 
CMPs established by these regulations are applicable only to civil 
penalties assessed after January 15, 2018, whose associated violations 
occurred after November 2, 2015.
