Dubai — The Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai launched a ‘Self Inspector’ initiative.

The initiative will train and deploy inspectors in major shopping malls and business groups to complete compliance checks of their own outlets without officials from the Commercial Compliance and Consumer Protection (CCCP) sector in DED having to do official inspection visits. The first of its kind in the region, the initiative aims to train and qualify eligible candidates in compliance regulations and introduce them to irregularities likely among business establishments. The ‘Self Inspector’ initiative is part of DED’s efforts to promote the retail sector in line with international best practices and create a competitive environment that will enhance Dubai’s position as one of the best shopping destinations in the world. The first phase of the initiative will see 18 inspectors nominated by retail groups and malls trained and deployed within the groups and malls and successively, the initiative will be expanded to cover more inspectors in retail groups and malls.

Announcing the launch of the initiative, Sami Al Qamzi, director general of DED, emphasised the need for co-operation between the public and private sectors to serve the national economy.
