PUTRAJAYA, May 26 – The Ministry of Internal Trade and Consumption (KPDNHEP) has already mobilized an operation called “ OPS HAD 2J ” to ensure compliance with the limit of two hours of shopping in commercial premises.
KPDNHEP, in a statement, said OPS HAD 2J will focus on supermarkets, shopping complexes, farmers’ markets, night markets and other premises.
“To ensure maximum lead time efficiency, buyers are encouraged to plan their trip and list the items they want to purchase first. They are also encouraged to leave the premises once their purchase has been made.
“It should be noted here, that the goal of OPS HAD 2J is also to avoid too many customers on the premises, which will lead to traffic jams and may result in long waits for other customers,” indicates the press release.
He said 2,262 law enforcement officers across the country would monitor and ensure full compliance with related SOPs.
The operation also involved other enforcement agencies such as the Ministry of Health, the police and local authorities.
KPDNHEP said any guest who exceeded the length of stay would be assigned a compound.
“Apart from the two-hour purchase limit, all parties, namely customers and traders, must comply with other existing SOPs,” he said. – Bernama
