On 12 September 2013, the Dutch Trade and Industry Appeals Tribunal (CBb) ruled in a childcare centres case that may also be relevant to other areas of administrative law (ECLI:NL:CBB:2013:154). In that case, the CBb ruled that if a third party fails to comply with an instruction from the government then a fine can only be imposed once. This means that if an instruction is repeatedly not complied with, a new instruction must follow, based on which a fine may again be imposed if this second instruction is also not complied with.
