MONROVIA, August 25 (LINA) -The Ministry of Commerce will Monday begin a three-month “intensive inspection” of business houses to provide consumer protection and ensure continuous compliance with general business law, investment code and standard regulations.

The exercise, which starts August 29 and ends on September 30, will focus on ‘English labeling, business registration, adulterated products and price tagging, a release issued recently by the ministry said.

The release stated that the inspection will be done from Mondays to Thursdays each week, covering building construction materials, electronics, super and mini markets, provision shops and stationery stores.

According to the release, the Metrology Division of the National Standard Laboratory will conduct the quarterly gas station verification along with weights and scales at all establishments where relevant.

“This process is being carried out to ensure that consumers receive the required quantity of petroleum products and other consumable goods that are purchased from various gas stations and other relevant business areas throughout the country,” the release indicated.

Meanwhile, the ministry is calling on the business community to fully cooperate with inspectors implementing inspection regulations, while at the same time instructing inspectors and all departments concerned to ensure that the process is extended in all parts of the country to guarantee good health and safety for all consumers.
