The majority of on-field disciplinary issues are dealt with under the Fixed Penalty system through ECB Regulation 4 of the Professional Conduct Regulations. Individual players who accumulate a number of Fixed Penalties within a set timeframe receive an automatic suspension. Teams whose players accumulate a number of Fixed Penalties within a set timeframe will receive an automatic points penalty.
