- Misrepresenting the contents, ingredients, quantities or characteristics are also unlawful and prone to be penalized under the law.
- Advertising of goods without an intention to produce them for sale is also prohibited under the Act.
- The Attorney General’s Office is given the authority to monitor unfair practices and violations of the Act and to bring the guilt to justice.
