The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry has mobilised "Ops Had 2J" from Wednesday (May 26) to ensure the two-hour shopping limit at business premises is observed.

The Ministry, in a statement, said the the operation would focus on supermarkets, shopping complexes, farmers’ markets, night markets and other premises.

"To ensure the effectiveness of the maximum time limit, shoppers are urged to plan their journey and list the items they want to buy first. They are also encouraged to leave the premises once they have made their purchases.

"It should be noted here, that the aim of Ops Had 2J is also to avoid too many customers in the premises which will cause congestion and can result in a long wait for other customers," the statement read.

It said 2,262 enforcement officers nationwide would monitor and ensure full compliance with the related standard operating procedure (SOP).

The operation also involves other enforcement agencies such as the Health Ministry, police and local authorities.

The Consumer Affairs Minister said any customer who overstayed would be issued a compound.

"Other than the two-hour shopping limit, all parties, including customers and traders, must comply with the other existing SOPs, ” it said. – Bernama
