Imposing an administrative penalty or shutting down works are possible actions under administrative law. Under criminal law, investigations may be launched by the Fiscal Intelligence and Investigation Service (FIOD), the Social Affairs and Employment Inspectorate (Inspectie Sociale Zaken en Werkgelegenheid), the Criminal Investigations Department (ISZW-DO), the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (Inspectie Leefomgeving en Transport) and the Intelligence and Investigation Service (ILT-IOD). These investigations may subsequently lead to criminal prosecution by the Public Prosecution Service.
