A new Consumer Protection Law (Law No. 35 of 2012) was recently issued in Bahrain. The Law entered into force on August 3, 2012.
The Consumers Protection Law includes provisions on the rights of consumers. Its main objective is to protect the consumer’s health and ensure that quality control is efficient in the country. It aims also at combating unfair business practices such as the availability of counterfeit products in the market and it imposes sanctions on those who are in breach of its provisions.
