The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MOCI) conducted a surprise inspection campaign at the trade fairs that have recently been held in Qatar.
The operation aims to monitor the extent to which companies participating at the Fairs were complying with their obligations stipulated in Law No. (8) of 2008 on Consumer Protection.
These investigations form part of the Ministry's efforts to monitor markets and commercial activities across Qatar, control prices, and protect consumer rights as well as to detect abuses along with commodities that are falsified, counterfeit or non-conforming to standard specifications.
The campaign resulted in the seizure of various samples of honey, incense and essential oils of unknown origin. The laboratory results proved that the samples do not conform to the standard specifications.
Several violations were released, including displaying and selling fraudulent goods, displaying goods in a manner that contains false and deceptive information, and failure to write explanatory data related to the commodity.
In this regard, the Ministry stressed that it would not tolerate any negligence in terms of meeting obligations stipulated in Law No. (8) of 2008 on Consumer Protection and its executive regulations and that it would intensify its inspection campaigns to curb violations. Any party that violates laws and Ministerial decisions will be referred to the relevant authorities who would respond appropriately to protect consumer rights.
The Ministry urges all citizens and residents to report any violations or infractions through the following official channels the call center 16001 and MOCI social media accounts.
