FTC has expressed interest in the cases of inferior concrete blocks being sold to the public

The manufacturers of inferior concrete blocks being sold to the public are facing scrutiny from another government entity, with possible penalties on the horizon. The Fair Trading Commission (FTC) has now taken an interest in the matter, based on the representations which may have been made by the block makers to members of the public. Last week, the Bureau of Standards released information regarding a high percentage of inferior blocks being sold in the Jamaican market. It found that island wide inspections at more than 200 block makers showed eight out of every 10 blocks were substandard. David Miller, Executive Director of the FTC, told the media that an analysis was being done to determine whether there are breaches of the Fair Competition Act The Bureau of Standards has announced plans to seize the inferior blocks and implement a more rigorous programme of sampling and testing.
