Jamaican business owners warned to comply with regulations to ensure consumer safety
Jamaicans who wish to establish businesses in the country are again being warned to conduct these enterprises in compliance with the country’s rules and regulations.
The warning follows yesterday’s multi-agency operation in Clifton, St. Catherine, where over 140 cylinders containing cooking gas were seized at a home.
Two persons were taken into custody, after the operation revealed breaches relating to the Consumer Protection Act, the Trade Mark Act, the Natural Resources Conservation Authority Act, the Petroleum and Oil Fuel Act and the Proceeds of Crime Act.
Head of operations for the St. Catherine South Police, Superintendent Hopton Nicholson said business owners must operate within the laws of the country to ensure their safety, and the safety of consumers.
