The Ministry of Commerce & Industry (MoCI) has announced the closure of a car maintenance shop in Al-Gharrafa. This is due to its noncompliance with public and private requirements, and its violation of the MoCI's circular regulating businesses of commercial stores engaged in car maintenance and repair activities in cities and commercial streets.
This measure comes as part of the MoCI’s efforts to monitor and regulate markets and commercial activities across Qatar, and to assess 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 neither 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, nor would it allow violating the circular regulating businesses of commercial stores engaged in car maintenance and repair activities in cities and commercial streets.
The MoCI assured that it intends to intensify its inspection campaigns to control violating practices. Any party who violates laws and Ministerial decisions will be referred to the relevant authorities who would respond appropriately against violators to protect consumer rights.
The MoCI urged all citizens and residents to report any violations or infractions related to registration and commercial licensing, or noncompliance with preventive and precautionary measures through the following official channels: Call Center: 16001,
