According to informed sources, the solution involves amending the law related to licenses for commercial shops. The bureau has given strict instructions to the ministry to stop rectifying the status of companies whose licenses were cancelled in 2000 and after, as this process is in violation of article 11 of law No. 111/2013.

■ The company has been liquidated or terminated

■ The license owner requests for canceling the license

■ The company has not practiced its business activities for six consecutive months without informing the ministry

■ The license has not been renewed within one year after the date of expiry

■ The license owner presented fake data or forged documents to obtain the license

■ The license owner violated the articles of the executive decree of this law

■ The license owner violated the health-related conditions including selling spoiled or expired food items.
