3. Principles of sanctioning administrative violations in the field of statistics

The principles of sanctioning administrative violations in the field of statistics shall comply with Article 3 of the Ordinance on Handling of Administrative Violations of July 6, 1995 and Article 2 of the Government’s Decree No. 93/1999/ND-CP of September 7, 1999 on sanctioning administrative violations in the field of statistics. More concretely:

a/ The sanctioning of administrative violations in the field of statistics must be effected by the competent persons defined in Articles 12, 13, 14 and 15 of the Government’s Decree No. 93/1999/ND-CP of September 7, 1999 on sanctioning administrative violations in the field of statistics. They are the statistical specialized inspectors, the statistical specialized chief inspectors of provincial- and central levels, the presidents of the district- and provincial-level People’s Committees.

b/ All administrative violations in the field of statistics, when detected, must be stopped immediately and handled in a quick and fair manner. Together with the sanctioning, the violations must be immediately redressed by re-starting the proper statistical regimes as prescribed.

c/ An administrative violation in the field of statistics shall be sanctioned only once. An individual or organization that commits more than one administrative violation shall be sanctioned for each of such violations. If more than one individual and/or organization commit an administrative violation, each of such individuals and/or organizations shall be sanctioned.

d/ The sanctioning of an administrative violation in the field of statistics must be based on the nature and seriousness of such violation, the violator’s personal background as well as the extenuating and aggravating circumstances stipulated in Articles 7 and 8 of the Ordinance on Handling of Administrative Violations as well as the provisions of this Circular so as to decide the appropriate form and level of sanction.

d.1. Cases where levels of sanction against administrative violations in the field of statistics may be reduced:

- The violating individuals or organizations consciously redress the violations and overcome the consequences thereof.

- The violations have been committed under the circumstances of natural calamities or fires.

- The violations have been committed due to the violators’ professional limitations or failure to get the statistical training, fostering or guidance, which is certified by the statistical agencies of different levels.

d.2. Cases where levels of sanction against administrative violations in the field of statistics may be increased:

- The violations have been committed in an organized manner.

- A violator commits more than one violation or a violation has been repeated.

- The violators deliberately do not report or repeatedly make false reports for many periods.

- The violators deliberately wrongly apply the method of calculating the statistical norms and/or wrongly implement the regulations of the statistical survey plans, which are repeated despite warning.

- The violators abuse their positions and/or powers to commit violations or coerce other persons to commit violations.

- The violators take advantage of objective circumstances like natural calamities, fires… to commit violations.

- The violators commit violations while executing the previous sanctioning decisions on statistics.

- The violators commit acts of avoiding and/or covering violations.

e/ It is strictly forbidden to withhold cases of violation with signs of criminal offenses for administrative sanctions such as acts of intentionally making false reports on socio-economic situation, thus causing serious consequences.

f/ Where a violations is committed by an organization, such organization shall be sanctioned. The sanctioned organization shall have to abide by the sanctioning decision and at the same time define faults of each person who has directly committed the administrative violation so that the latter may be disciplined and/or compensate for the fine the organization has paid.

g/ The procedures for sanctioning administrative violations in the field of statistics shall comply with Article 16 of the Government’s Decree No. 93/1999/ND-CP of September 7, 1999 on sanctioning administrative violations in the field of statistics.

h/ When deciding to sanction a person or an organization that has committed more than one administrative violation, the competent person shall decide the form of sanction for each of the violations; if fines are imposed, they must be added up into the total fine amount.

Example: In enterprise X, when inspecting the observance of the statistical reporting regime in 1998, the following violations are detected:

- The use of biannual report form other than that prescribed by the State statistical regime. However, since the violation was committed for the first time, the fine level shall be 300,000 VND (the fine bracket of from 100,000 VND to 500,000 VND as stipulated in Item 1.1, Part II of this Circular);

- The annual report was submitted 30 days later than schedule, which is subject to a fine of 1,000,000 VND (the fine bracket of from 1,000,000 VND to 2,000,000 VND as stipulated at Point a, Item 4.2, Part II of this Circular);

The total fine amount for the three above violations for enterprise X is:

300,000 + 1,000,000 + 3,500,000 = 4,800,000 VND.

4. Statute of limitations for sanctions
