Two commercial premises selling goods above the maximum price set for controlled-price items were issued compounds by the Department of Economic Planning and Statistics (DEPS) under the Ministry of Finance and Economy (MoFE).
The commercial premises were issued with a BND500 fine each for violating Chapter 142 of the Price Control Act.
Businesses are advised to comply with Chapter 142 of the Price Control Act as well as regulations under it, and be mindful in ensuring fair and ethical business practices in an effort to help develop a sustainable business environment.
Businesses are also urged to use the PenggunaBijak mobile app to get details on Chapter 142 of the Price Control Act and file official complaints regarding unfair business practices by attaching supporting documents such as payment receipts and pictures as evidence.
