The Ministry of Commerce and Investment is intensifying its control and inspection campaigns on the outlets selling school supplies, such as libraries, bookstores and stationery stores in different regions of the Kingdom, concurrently with the start of the new academic year.
The inspection tours carried out by the MCI inspectors aim at controlling the markets and ensuring the availability of products, goods and price tags, as well as controlling the prices, also verifying the regularity of work at libraries and stationery stores, and the absence of any commercial fraud.
During the inspection tours this week, MCI inspectors monitored some violations, such as the absence of the price tag and the difference between the price on the shelf and that with the cashier. Therefore, legal penalties were imposed on the violators.
MCI would like to confirm the continuation of its inspection tours on bookstores and libraries to ensure the absence of any commercial fraud. All consumers are kindly requested to lodge their complaints and observations through MCI Consumer Call Center (1900) or by applying a Commercial Violation Report through their smart phones, or through MCI official website.
