(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Kuwait Minister of Commerce and Industry Anas Al-Saleh issued a ministerial resolution forcing companies and importers to withdraw from local markets their products with manufacturing defects or those which do not comply with standards.
In a press statement, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce identified the cases in which new resolution was applied.
Firstly in case of the producer or importer's admission of the defection or violations of standards or when the original producer withdrew the same product from any other market even if the local subsidiary or importer claimed that those available on Kuwaiti markets do not have these defects.
Secondly, when the Ministry's inspectors and laboratories discover the defects during the routinely check-ups or upon complaints from the consumers.
The new regulation also obliges the producer and importer to launch advertisement campaign, in different media outlets, to warn and urge consumers and vendors to return their stock of the relative product.
Then the producers and importers must present to the Ministry a detailed report on the product withdrawal process, the statement concluded.
