The authority added any violation or malpractice found by inspectors or reported by the public would not be tolerated.

Dubai Economy has directed businesses to strictly adhere to the precautionary measures and called on the public to report any harmful practices they come across through the Dubai Consumer App, by calling 600545555, or via the Consumerrights.ae website.
