Alcohol – 2Q of 2016

(Prague, September 26, 2016) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority didn’t find any violation of legal regulations relating to alcohol, namely the law on mandatory labelling of spirits and the Act on Excise Duties. However, other serious defects were discovered which mostly related to the Act on Consumer Protection. In the evaluated period, 560 fines amounting to almost CZK 3,200,000 were lawfully imposed. “The results of continuous inspections show that the Act on Consumer Protection is still breached, namely within every second inspection. CTIA will keep inspecting this field and pay increased attention to the area of detected defects,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
