The Ministry of Commerce and Industry has obliged sales outlets in the country to take a set of precautionary health requirements for the safety of citizens and residents.
The Ministry said in a statement that all consumer complexes and sales outlets signed a pledge to adhere to the precautionary requirements by taking employees' temperature twice daily, providing sterilizers at the main entrances, gathering places and toilets, and sanitizing shopping carts before they are used by shoppers, as well as sanitizing surfaces continuously such as refrigerators' doors and doorknobs.
The Ministry noted that these requirements come within the framework of the precautionary and preventive measures announced by the Ministry to limit the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and pursuant to Article 13 of the Consumer Protection Law No. 8 of 2008, which requires suppliers to adhere to the health and safety requirements.
The Ministry of Commerce and Industry called on all sales outlets to comply fully with these requirements, stressing that it will intensify its inspection campaigns to ensure compliance with the requirements. Any violations to the laws and ministerial decisions will be referred to the competent authorities for appropriate measures in order to protect the rights of consumers, it said.
The Ministry urged the public to report any violations through the phone number of the call center 16001 or e-mail: infomoci.gov.qa or through its accounts approved on social networking sites: Twitter MOCIQATAR, Instagram MOCIQATAR or the ministry application on MOCIQATAR smartphones.
