Fines come under General Law of Public Health and are between 3,000 and 60,000 euros, plus there is a new law in process meaning venues can be closed for non-compliance.

Two nightclubs in a Playa Blanca commercial centre have been denounced by the Guardia Civil for failing to comply with health regulations, after two inspections and a warning.

The inspections were carried out in collaboration with the Local Police, with four carried out every day, with the aim of making sure that compliance with the health regulations established by the Government of the Canary Islands, is being adhered to.

The first four inspections were carried out last week, resulting in two sanction proposals, one for each establishment, which were sent to the Ministry of Health.

On Monday night they returned to inspect the same businesses, in order to verify that they were now complying after the first inspection, which they weren't so the fines were processed.

Not following these rules is a serious infraction included in the General Law of Public Health, under the assumption of conduct that may produce a serious risk to the health of the population.
These infractions are quantified in a fine that ranges from 3,000 to 60,000 euros, and are issued by the Ministry of Health of the Canary Islands Government.

In addition, to prevent these defaults from continuing to occur, a proposal has been submitted so that they can close establishments that do not comply with the resolution of the Canary Islands Government.
