20 wed­ding venues fail in­spec­tions: Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion Com­mit­tee

The China Post - - LOCAL - BY ME­GAN VAN VEGTEN

Dur­ing an in­spec­tion by the Con­sumer Pro­tec­tion Com­mit­tee (CPC, ), 20 out of 20 wed­ding re­cep­tion halls and restau­rants fell short of safety stan­dards, in­clud­ing those for con­struc­tion and food safety.

The CPC in­spected 20 wed­ding re­cep­tion halls and restau­rants in Taipei, Hs­inchu, Taichung, Chi­ayi and Ilan last month. All 20 busi­nesses were found to be in vi­ola- tion of safety stan­dards.

A to­tal of 15 busi­nesses did not meet con­struc­tion safety man­age­ment reg­u­la­tions. Four did not meet fire safety reg­u­la­tions and 17 fell short of stan­dards for food hy­giene, the CPC an­nounced. The CPC has re­quested that rel­e­vant author­i­ties ask busi­nesses to im­prove.

As of Tues­day, four busi­nesses have ad­dressed is­sues with con­struc­tion safety man­age­ment, while nine are mak­ing progress. Three busi­nesses have ad­dressed is­sues with fire safety reg­u­la­tions and one is still im­prov­ing.

Thir­teen busi­nesses were fined for han­dling ex­pired food, while two have been asked to ad­dress is­sues by a dead­line. Two cases are still un­der re­view.

In Taipei, the Chin Chin Gar­den Res­tau­rant ( ) was fined NT$220,000, and the Chi­nese Cui­sine Ban­quet (

) at the ATT 4 Fun was fined NT$100,000.
