On Tuesday September 1 a rule took effect, the same that binds to a manual in force since last year, to regulate a sector: supermarkets and suppliers.
The two standards seek the same goal, to avoid unfair competition in the market and boost the participation of popular actors of the supportive economy, artisans and micro and small enterprises in trade relations with supermarkets.
The Regulatory Standards for supermarket chains and their suppliers, issued by the Regulatory Board of the Organic Law for the Regulation and Control of Market Power, is based on a 85% in the Manual for Good Commercial Practice for the Supermarkets and / or their analogues and its suppliers sector.
However, while the manual defines the supermarkets according to the size of the store, the standard makes it according to the number of establishments (more than one) and according to the number of cash registers (three or more).
