So what's the penalty for not complying? Is there any? If so is anyone going to enforce it? Will they charge anybody?

I'm going to guess that there's no penalty and/or no enforcement so it's actually just a suggestion, not an actual law.

I would think if they tried to use evidence obtained this way, it would be thrown out.

It would be, but parallel construction remains legal. Aka. they can use facts obtained illegally to go find evidence they can justify by saying they could of found it in the first place, and then hide the fact they got the original evidence. If the court or the defense only know about the 2nd facts and not the first, they cannot challenge it.
