Individuals who stock corn, sugar, powdered milk, paddy, and rice must register with the Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) in order to avoid concealing the stocks, according to an Extraordinary Gazette.
Importers, producers, mill owners, collectors, store owners, distributors, and wholesale dealers will be unable to keep the aforementioned essential food goods in their possession unless they have registered with the CAA.
The relevant individuals have been instructed to register themselves within a period of 7 days.
Importers, producers, mill owners, collectors, store owners, distributors, and wholesale sellers are required to provide information on product stocks in their possession to the CAA when asked, according to a gazette notification issued by CAA Chairman Major General (Rtd.) Shantha Dissanayake on Friday (June 11).
The directions will take effect on June 11 and will not apply to farmers who harvest rice and corn from their own fields, according to the gazette statement.
