The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) has carried out an inspection campaign, jointly with Qatar Petroleum, at retail outlets in Mesaieed Industrial City.
The campaign was conducted in a bid to monitor the degree of compliance with laws and resolutions regulating commercial activities, including Law No 5 of 2005 on Commercial Registration, and Law No 5 of 2015 on Commercial, Industrial and Similar Public Shops, and Street Vendors, the ministry said in a press statement yesterday.
The campaign resulted in the “seizure and recording of two violations”, namely commercial licence expiration and failure to comply with the general and special requirements, the statement noted.
The inspection campaign comes as part of the ministry’s efforts to monitor and regulate markets and commercial activities across Qatar, and 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 2005 and Law No 5 of 2015, and that it would intensify its inspection campaigns to crack down on such practices.
The ministry has urged all merchants and shopkeepers to comply with the applicable laws and regulations governing commercial activities, and invited them to review such laws and regulations on its website, www.moci.gov.qa, to avoid legal accountability and penalties. The MoCI has also urged all citizens and residents to report any violations or infractions related to registration and commercial licensing through the call centre: 16001 and the ministry’s social media accounts - Twitter: @MOCIQATAR and Instagram: MOCIQATAR.
