The ruling of the Tribunal Constitucional Rol Nº2922-2015, that declares inapplicable the first paragraph of the article 29 from the Law Decree No. 3,538 of 1980 is studied since it lacks enough criteria to determine the penalty of a fine. The paper analyzes the need, or even the essentiality that the appealed precept grants legal standards for determining fines. It also seeks to establish whether its current structure generates a constitutional conflict.
