The Ministry of Commerce and Industry has announced a ban on car washing in public and private parking lots, including outdoor ones in malls and on commercial streets, as posted on its official Twitter account. Practicing the activity shall be limited to licensed companies only and within the underground parking lots of malls, provided that suitable space is allocated for it, in terms of the number of parking spaces, the Ministry added.

Additionally, the general and special requirements as per the laws and regulations must be adhered to, and they include:

  • Allocating suitable places for car washing activities that contain drainage points;
  • Ensuring that employees wear clean and decent uniforms, on which the name of the company and the worker is indicated;
  • Maintaining the cleanliness of the surrounding space;
  • Abstaining from following and bothering clients;
  • Ensuring they provide and use modern means and clean tools when washing cars;
  • Adhering to all precautionary measures put in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

This step comes as part of the Ministry's efforts to regulate and monitor commercial activities across Qatar, as well as take the necessary measures to curb illegal practices.

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry stresses that all concerned companies must adhere to the decision above. Any violation of this decision exposes perpetrators to legal accountability and procedure.
