THE ban on trade in non-ferrous metals will remain in place at least until the end of this month.

This comes as permanent secretary for Industry and Trade Shaheen Ali revealed an enforcement team was still investigating complaints on illegal scrap metal dealers.

Mr Ali said the Compliance and Enforcement Working Group (CEWG), comprising key government and non-government stakeholders would review the ban at their next meeting.

"The decision on whether to lift the suspension will be assessed by the working group and discussed at their next meeting after which a decision will be taken," Mr Ali said.

"The decision will also depend on whether scrap metal traders are abiding by the Fijian Laws which includes Scrap Metal Trade Decree of 2011."
