28. The imposition of a monetary administrative penalty for failure to comply with the Act or the regulations is prescribed two years after the date of the failure to comply.
However, if false representations have been made to the Minister or to a functionary or investigator, the monetary administrative penalty may be imposed within two years after the date on which the investigation that led to the discovery of the failure to comply was begun.
In the absence of evidence to the contrary, the Minister’s or investigator’s certificate constitutes conclusive proof of the date on which the investigation was begun.
