GAM to take legal action against unlicensed facilities serving argileh

By JT - Mar 13,2016 - Last updated at Mar 13,2016

AMMAN — The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) on Sunday urged owners of shops that serve argileh (water pipe) to abide by the law and not serve customers unless they are licensed, according to GAM regulations and provisions of the Public Health Law.

The decision applies to shops which are classified as tourist facilities or any other type of licence, according to GAM.

Regulations released in April 2014, stipulate that a coffee shop can either stop serving food to be allowed to continue serving argileh, or stop serving argileh and only serve food. Under a third option, cafés should designate two separate areas, one to serve food and the other to serve argileh in areas where smoking is allowed. Starting from April 1, GAM said that it will have to take legal action against violating shops.
