    9. Trading in rags

    (1) Every rag merchant shall cause all rags, worn clothing, textile fabrics, used bedding and other materials of similar description, acquired in the course of his trade to be stored in such a manner and in such a situation as to prevent them from becoming a nuisance, injurious to health or a harbourage for vermin.

    (2) A rag merchant shall cause all rags, worn clothing, textile fabrics, used bedding and other materials of similar description, acquired in the course of his trade, to be immediately cleansed or disinfected and rendered visibly clean, if they had not been so treated immediately before he acquired them, but this regulation does not apply in the case of materials which are to be sold or hired to another rag merchant.

    (3) A rag merchant shall cause the building in which he works

    (a) and all equipment associated with transport, storage, handling and processing to be kept clean at all times;

    (b) to be effectively enclosed against contamination from outside sources such as dust and dirt; and

    (c) to be effectively ventilated to render harmless as far as practicable all gases, fumes, dust and other impurities.
