Qatari officials shut down these place for using expired products
Qatar’s Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC) has shut down a beauty salon in Madinat Khalifa for a week for using expired products, reported Gulf Times.
The closure decision came within the framework of the ministry’s intensive inspection campaign carried out to monitor markets and commercial activities to crack down on violations, price manipulation and counterfeit and substandard products, reported The Peninsula.
The Ministry said on its social media channels that the beauty salon, Happy Hair, was fined and closed for a one-week period in line with article (6) of law number (8) of 2008 which stipulates: “No defective or adulterated commodity shall be sold, displayed, presented, promoted or advertised. The commodity shall be deemed to be adulterated or defective where it does not conform to the prescribed standard specifications, is unfit for use, or has expired.”
A few days back, the MEC had closed a Jewellery shop in Hyatt Plaza for two weeks for displaying and selling counterfeit international gold jewellery brands.
