Bahrain passes new consumer protection law
Manama, May 8, 2012
Bahrain’s Industry and Commerce Ministry will get the right to assign inspectors to scrutinise documents provided by merchants on new products to be introduced in the market in a new law approved by the Shura Council.
The law also allows inspection of shops and businesses on a regular basis to check existing products.
Inspectors with judiciary authorities will also have the right to take action on violations committed by businesses after substantial evidence has been provided or through random inspections. – TradeArabia News Service
