CPA Issues New Decision Banning Furniture Manufactured from Used Materials

The Consumer Protection Authority has published in today’s Official Gazette a new decision Banning the Trading of Furniture Manufactured from Used Sponges, Fabrics, and Clothes that replaces the previous decision banning the use of such materials in the manufacture of furniture issued in 2015.

The scope of the previous was limited to the use of used sponges, fabrics, and clothes in the manufacture of furniture. The new decision widens the scope by banning the trading of furniture manufactured using such materials. The fine imposed for violations has now also been increased from 500 Rial Omani to 1,000 Rial Omani.

This new decision enters into force tomorrow. You can read it in full in English on the link below:
