The Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Consumer Protection has published The Consumer Protection (Control of Fairs) Regulations 2016 through the Government Notice No. 19 of 2016 to control the organisation of Trade Fairs in Mauritius.
The new provisions of the Regulations include, amongst others, a list of items authorised to be displayed and sold during trade fairs and the prohibition to organise trade fairs on a sports ground, on a parking area or in gardens.
The Consumer Protection (Events) Regulations 2013 are therefore revoked. A copy of the new Consumer Protection (Control of Fairs) Regulations 2016 can be accessed by clicking here.
The new Regulations are in force since 12 February 2016.
