The Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC) has announced the two-week closure of a phone shop located in Al Rayyan Al Jadeed for displaying and selling counterfeit batteries bearing international trademarks.
The inspection campaign comes within the framework of the ministry’s efforts to monitor markets and commercial activities in order to crack down on price manipulation and uncover violations, as well as counterfeit, fraudulent and substandard products, the ministry has said in a statement.
The outlet was fined and closed for a two-week period in line with Article 7 of Law No 8 of 2008.
Article 7 compels suppliers to clearly display on the product’s package or label the type and nature of the item, as well as other relevant data in line with the law’s implementing regulations.
The law also prohibits the display of fraudulent descriptions, advertisements and misleading statements.
The MEC has urged all consumers to report violations or submit complaints and suggestions to its consumer protection and anti-commercial fraud department through the call centre: 16001, e-mail: [email protected], Twitter: MEC_QATAR, Instagram: MEC_QATAR or the ministry’s app on smartphones available on iPhone and Android devices: MEC_QATAR.
