The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) has carried out an inspection campaign, jointly with the Ministry of Interior, on retail outlets in Al Sheehaniya, in a bid to monitor the degree of compliance with laws and resolutions regulating commercial activities, including law No. (5) of 2015 on Commercial, Industrial and Similar Public Shops, and Street Vendors.

The inspection campaign resulted in 37 reports of violations including incompliance with public and private requirements (failure to adhere to the precautionary measures).

The inspection campaign comes as part of the MoCI’s efforts to monitor and regulate markets and commercial activities across Qatar, and to monitor the degree of compliance with laws and regulations governing commercial activities in a bid to uncover and crack down on violations.

The MoCI stressed that it would not tolerate any negligence in terms of meeting obligations stipulated in Law No. 5 of 2015, and that it would intensify its inspection campaigns to crackdown on such practices. The ministry said it would refer any party that violates laws and Ministerial decisions to competent authorities, who would take appropriate measures against violators in order to protect consumer rights.

The MoCI urges all merchants and shopkeepers to comply with applicable laws and regulations governing commercial activities, and to review them on its website to avoid legal accountability and penalties.

The ministry also urges all citizens and residents to report any violations or infractions related to registration and commercial licensing through the following channels: Call Center: 16001; Twitter @MOCIQATAR; Instagram MOCIQATAR
