The Department of Consumer Protection in Ibra has recently participated in the Health Inspector and Dietitian Event, organized by the Applied Science and Health Group at Sharqiyah University for final year students from the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Health.



The Department explained how to field inspect shops and restaurants outside and inside the university. Two field trips were conducted for the students to explain the field inspection and the most important procedures followed by the inspector in the inspection of shops, with emphasis on the steps taken in recording violations of shops and how to use the palm devices to register the violations.
"The field inspection added additional information to our scientific background and reviewed some of the theoretical information we studied in the curriculum or specialization," said Esraa al-Anbari, head of the university's science group. Under the supervision of academics and with the assistance of specialists from consumer protection, the field inspection was divided into internal inspection and external inspection. We were able to retrieve information on the need to pay attention to the expiry dates of promotions, drawings and writings in clothing and shoes. It also explained the importance of the guarantee booklet and the need to pay attention to the period of recovery approved by the law, especially with regard to electronic devices.
