Muscat: People trading Marshal electrical transformers will be fined between OMR 50 and OMR 1,000, Consumer Protection Authority (CPA) said.

"His Excellency Sulayem bin Ali Al Hikmani, Chairman of the Consumer Protection Authority, recently issued Resolution No. (209/2021) regarding the prohibition of trading an electrical transformer of Marshal trademark," the Authority said in a statement.

The decision in the first article banned the circulation of electric transformers bearing the trademark Marshal for not conforming to the approved standard specifications, and the second article stated that the existing quantities of the product mentioned in the first article should be withdrawn from all the markets of the Sultanate.

The third article of the decision mentions not to violate the Consumer Protection Law. Violators will be slapped with an administrative fine of no less than OMR 50 and not more than OMR 1,000 and the fine will be doubled in the event of a repeat violation.

In the event that this violation continues, an administrative fine of OMR 50 will be imposed for each day of the violation, provided that the total does not exceed OMR 2,000. Article four indicated that those concerned must implement this decision on the date of its issuance.

The Authority calls on all suppliers to abide by what the decision stipulates, not to trade the product, and work to withdraw it from the market in order to ensure the health and safety of consumers. It also calls on everyone to cooperate and report any violation or abuse through the authority's various communication channels.
