The 56-year-old faced an initial SFA hearing after the 2-1 home defeat to St Johnstone on 24 November when Saints claimed a last-minute victory after Killie midfielder Manuel Pascali was sent off in the fifth minute.
Following the hearing, Shiels said: "I brought in evidence to disprove the fourth official, who fabricated stuff to try and incriminate me. I don't like that. The fabrication was outrageous."
As a result Shiels was charged with "making comments in media interviews that impinged upon the character of a match official".
The SFA gave Shiels a three-match touchline ban following the initial hearing, with a further two matches suspended, and that two-match suspended sentence has now been enforced, along with the application of a further two-match ban.
