Dubai Economy reaches out to traders on Commitment Day


The Commercial Compliance & Consumer Protection (CCCP) sector in Dubai Economy observed today as a ‘Compliance Day,’ as part of building awareness of commercial regulations and better compliance among businesses in the emirate. 

The Compliance Day is celebrated in September every year with CCCP officials visiting commercial establishments to educate businessmen and their employees on the importance of complying with regulations, without imposing any penalties for violations spotted on the day.

"The Commercial Compliance & Consumer Protection sector is keen to inculcate awareness of business laws and regulations among existing businesses and entrepreneurs across Dubai.  The Compliance Day serves to enhance trust and build competitive relations in the local market, eventually promoting business development and the reputation of Dubai as the place to shop, for residents and visitors alike,” said Mohammed Rashed Ali Lootah, CEO of CCCP.

Part of promoting a culture of compliance and commercial awareness among businesses in Dubai and particularly among the emirate’s flagship retail sector, Compliance Day also seeks to strengthen the local market and encourage service excellence. The educational initiative is designed to drive home the concept of a competitive business environment and global best practices in conducting trade.

Lootah said the government is keen to bridge the gaps in the emirate’s business environment and eliminate obstacles for the private sector, which is a strategic partner in the sustainable development of Dubai. The level of happiness among traders and their confidence in the business and investment in Dubai and the UAE in general are also top priorities for the government sector, added Lootah. "Our mission is to raise quality standards, promote best practices and excellence across products and services offered in Dubai, protect consumers and uphold the competitiveness of Dubai regionally and globally.”span style="color: #0000ff;">
