09 Mar 2015
MCI continued its inspection campaigns on building and electric stores, where many adulterated and counterfeit electrical appliances and construction materials, not complying with standard specifications, were confiscated in Al Baha. More than 15 thousand pieces of counterfeit electric connections, plugs and mobile chargers were seized. Those involved were summoned for investigation and taking the legal procedures against them.

This came as a continuation of the previous campaigns on counterfeit and non-conforming devices and items in various regions of the Kingdom, where large quantities of such items were confiscated and destroyed. The stores were shut down, and the legal procedures had been taken against the violators.

MCI would like to emphasize that its inspection rounds will be continued on warehouses, factories and commercial institutions, to ensure their regular work and the absence of fraud practices and manipulation on consumers, and to stop exploiting the demand for purchase in selling and marketing any counterfeit or adulterated commodity.

MCI also emphasizes that it will not tolerate in imposing the legal penalties on violators and those involved in the practice of fraud and counterfeiting, and all that put the health and safety of consumers at risk.

MCI calls on all the consumers to report their complaints and observations to the Notification Center in the Ministry through the toll-free number 1900.
