    Billboard found with expired approval

    Fadley Faisal

    The Authority on Building Control and Construction Industry (ABCi) found an animated billboard along Jalan Pasar Gadong exhibiting its advertisement while its approval expired a
    month earlier.

    This was found during a routine inspection by the ABCi on billboards and signboards.

    ABCi ordered the advertising company to remove the billboard by virtue of its powers under the Building Control (Advertisement, Billboard and Signboard) Regulations 2016.

    Under the regulations, failure to comply with the order is punishable with a fine not exceeding BND10,000 or imprisonment of up to one year, or both.

    The ABCi also filed a police report on finding that the advertising company failed to comply with the removal order.

    The ABCi reminded that approvals for outdoor advertising are valid for six months from the time granted, and extensions must be separately applied for.
