MC inspection tours aim at ensuring the continuity of the work of the commercial establishments in providing their services to the consumers, in light of the precautionary measures applied to combat Covid-19, besides monitoring the functioning of the food supply chains, and verifying compliance of the outlets and shops with the consumer protection regulation.
MC inspectors in Madinah have released 133 violation notices during these inspection tours, and the necessary legal measures have been taken against the violators.
MC inspection tours revealed the abundance of basic commodities and consuming products, as well as their alternatives, especially the goods and products that the consumers desire to buy on the occasion of Eid Al-Fitr. The tours also showed that the work in these establishments is running smoothly in terms of abundance of goods, stock and the flow of food supplies.
The Ministry of Commerce calls on all consumers to lodge their complaints and reports through MC Consumer Call Center (1900), or through the application of a Commercial Violation Report, or via the Ministry’s website.
