Procon-MG, through the State School of Consumer Defense, in partnership with the Institutional Security Office (GSI), held the Improvement Course for Tax Agents for Consumer Protection between August 30 and September 1: Intelligence and Security, LPG and Health Surveillance. The opening of the work was attended by prosecutors Vanessa Fusco Nogueira Simões (coordinator of GSI) and Glauber Tatagiba (coordinator of Procon-MG).

The course, in addition to the exhibitors, had the participation of 38 inspectors from Procon-MG, representing all regions of Minas Gerais.

During the three days of activities, the inspectors underwent training related to the preparation/planning of the inspection; recognition of the establishment to be inspected; how to behave during the inspection act; unconventional approach and inspection; conflict management; crimes (resistance, disobedience, contempt and active corruption), how to recognize and proceed; retail resale of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG); retail sales of meat products and even held a conversation circle to exchange experiences.

According to the coordinator of Procon-MG, “this training is continuous, carried out periodically for inspectors and the objective is to update them in relation to the new legislation. It is important to update the attitude of inspectors towards suppliers. This ensures more effectiveness in the work of inspectors, which generates faster action by prosecutors and more effective action on behalf of the consumer”, highlights Glauber.
