(Final report of 2013)
(Prague, March 28, 2014) In 2013, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority focused on safety of toys in the Czech market. It detected breaches of obligations stipulated in applicable legal regulations in more than a half of the total of 1,200 inspections. Inspectors imposed 548 fines amounting to about 3.2 million CZK and banned selling of 4,650 toys in the overall price of 343,543 CZK. Special attention was paid e.g. to scooters and similar products with high risk as well as toys intended to be used by the most vulnerable consumers, i.e. children below 3 years of age. In this field, inspectors repeatedly saw breaches of laws as well as selling of anonymous toys without obligatory information for safe use and without CE mark or without product assessment in compliance with stipulated safety standards. Consumers should not buy such toys because these products can pose serious risk of health damage with regard to the used material, construction defects or content of dangerous chemical substances.
