On phone, so can’t type much. Please have a look at article 83: list of conditions to consider when determining the corrective measures (fines or other measures).

Also: there’s a guidance document for authorities here: https://ec.europa.eu/newsroom/just/document.cfm?doc_id=47889

EU law does not work with exact codified procedures, which I understand is more common in US. So indeed, you will find guidance but not exact procedure (though it seems to be clear enough to me)

EDIT: article 83 instead of 82

Nothing in the “guidance” you provided disincentivizes large/maximum fines, or actually limits the fines from being the maximum in any way. Downvote this all you like, that won’t change what they have (or more accurately, have not) written into the law.

> EU law does not work with exact codified procedures

That's a blatant untruth.
