If a licensee's squad cost ratio is in excess of the defined threshold, then the licensee will be subject to a financial disciplinary measure, to be calculated as a proportion of the squad cost ratio excess.


A licensee's squad cost ratio excess is the amount by which the licensee's squad cost ratio numerator as defined in Article 92 exceeds the squad costs that would otherwise have been required for the licensee's squad cost ratio to equal the limit defined in Article 93.


The financial disciplinary measure to be imposed by the CFCB will be a percentage of the licensee's squad cost ratio excess, based on the severity of the breach and number of breaches of the squad cost rule committed by the licensee in the last four licence seasons (including the licence season). When imposing the financial disciplinary measure, the CFCB will take into consideration the table in accordance with Annex L.4 below.
