Settlement discount

4.29 In the event that the Registration Authority and the person concerned agree on the action to be taken in a particular case, it is possible that any fine imposed on the person will be reduced to take account of the settlement that has been reached.
4.30 However, any settlement discount applied relates only to the punitive element of the fine and not to an amount included to deprive the person concerned of any profit made, or loss avoided, as a result of their contravention or to any restitution or compensation payable under the terms of the settlement.
