Guam - In order to ensure there is quality control with products bearing the Guam name, the Guam Economic Development Authority most recently made inspections at major retail establishments on island to fully enforce the Guam Product Seal law.

GEDA deputy administrator Mana Silva Taijeron says close to a dozen vendors were found to be in violation. "And during our inspection we didn't find anything really bad but what we did we find some violations we had products that didn't have the Product Seal when they are suppose to we also find some products that did have the product seals but they are not current permit holders," she explained.

GEDA had recently held an informational seminar on the new rules and regulations for the Guam Product Seal in order to give clients time to come into compliance. For those given notices, they were fined $500 and given 90 days to come into compliance. She adds as the enforcement arm of the Guam Product Seal, GEDA wants to provide that confidence to consumers and buyers that the products on the shelves are quality.
