PUTRAJAYA: Ninety factories were ordered to close by the task force monitoring standard operating procedure compliance during the first two weeks of the nationwide lockdown.

Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the closure order came after 404 factories were checked for compliance nationwide between June 1-14.

Cumulatively, 24,834 factories and business premises were checked since Jan 14 this year, involving 2,015 factories and 22,819 business premises.

“To date, a total of 143 factories and 17 non-factory premises have been issued with closure orders,” he said on Wednesday (June 16).

Ismail Sabri said to ensure business and manufacturing sectors comply with SOP, the government has increased operations to act against violators.

The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry had cumulatively, since May 13 last year, carried out 597,252 checks and issued 414 compounds.

He said that between June 6 and 14, the National Security Council had received 266 complaints, the most being violation of staff working in offices totalling 62 complaints.

Non-essential complaints registered 59 reports and 45 complaints were of violation of general SOP.

The Construction Industry Development Board inspected 138 construction sites nationwide on Tuesday (June 15), where 12 sites were ordered to close.
