Dubai Economy’s Commercial Compliance & Consumer Protection (CCCP) sector recently conducted 23,735 inspections where it found that 186 shops were not complying with the country’s preventive measures against the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

CCCP shut down 122 of these shops and fined 64 others for flouting rules and regulations including (but not limited to) wearing face masks and gloves, maintaining physical distancing, and practicing business activities prohibited in the current market re-opening phase.

In addition, CCCP also warned 1,222 shops with the aim of enhancing awareness among the business community and ensuring the safety of all.

Inspections during the first week of Ramadan revealed that 73% of the shops fully complied with the precautionary guidelines while the second, third and fourth weeks showed exceptionally improved compliance rates of 98%, 99% and 99.5%, respectively.

Reports from the Dubai Media Office further that the inspection campaign covered all open market areas and malls in Dubai, with 465 campaigns conducted across high street markets and 190, in malls.

Mohammed Ali Rashed Lootah, CEO of CCCP, said: “The high compliance rate we witnessed among businesses during the inspections reflect the level of their awareness and responsibility as well as resilience in the face of the changes that have occurred in doing business in the emirate. We thank the private sector for their commitment and keenness to limit the spread of COVID-19.

“In this market re-opening phase, our daily inspections verified that commercial establishments complied to the precautionary guidelines against COVID-19, remained committed to the shutdown announced during the National Sterilisation Programme, and did not practise any prohibited activity,” said Lootah as per reports from the Dubai Media Office.

Lootah added: “Dubai Economy, through its inspections and the warnings from CCCP for commercial shops, aims to educate the business community and consumers on the need to adhere to precautionary measures to ensure the supreme and most prominent goal of achieving safety and security for all society members in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dubai Economy also called on consumers to report any non-compliance to the COVID-19 precautionary guidelines via the Dubai Consumer App available on Apple, Google, and Huawei stores, by calling 600545555, or on the Consumerrights.ae website.
