A third of procurement centres breached obligations

(Final report of 2013)

(Prague, February 6, 2014) All-year action of Czech Trade Inspection Authority focused on inspection of obligations of operators of secondary raw materials procurement centres proved that more than one third of them breached the obligations stipulated in generally binding legal regulations. CTIA’s authorization to inspections within this field is governed by the Act on Consumer Protection and partly by the Act on Wastes that is inspected by the Czech Environmental Inspectorate (CEI). In 2013, within its inspections the CTIA also cooperated with the CEI as well as trade licensing offices which contributed to strengthening inspection competence of municipalities in this field. It can be expected that in the following period operators of procurement centres and professional public will be better informed thanks to newly published Picture catalogue of illegal procurement of secondary raw materials as well as other methodical materials that can enable more effective inspection of waste treatment.
