The Ministry of Commerce & Industry conducted inspection campaigns on retail outlets across Qatar, including the areas of Al Sadd, Fereej Bin Mahmoud, and Al Mansoura.
The inspection campaigns resulted in releasing 12 violations against a number of retail outlets for committing breaches of the law. These included failing to write the complete data on the shop identification plate, repairing cars outside the retail premises, and expiration of the commercial license.
These inspection campaigns stem from the Ministry’s keenness to monitor the extent of compliance with the laws and regulations governing the commercial sector and ensuring the protection of consumer rights.
In this regard, the Ministry stressed that it would not tolerate any negligence in terms of meeting obligations stipulated in law No. (5) of 2015 on Commercial, Industrial, and Similar Public Shops, and Street Vendors, and the Ministerial circular on the car repair and maintenance shops in cities and commercial streets.
The Ministry is working to intensify its inspection campaigns to control violating practices, and to refer those who infringe laws and Ministerial decisions to the relevant authorities in order to take the appropriate measures.
The Ministry also urges all citizens and residents to report any violations pertaining to registration and commercial licensing via the following official channels:
