All Souls’ Day: unlabelled products without price tags

(Prague, November 18, 2016) On All Souls’ Day most of us remembered their relatives who are not here anymore. And most of us wanted to light a candle or lay a flower. Sellers of appropriate goods always use this opportunity of course, but this year half of the inspected vendors didn’t comply with laws governing the sale of wreaths, flowers, flower decorations, plastic or ordinary flowers as well as a large assortment of candles. CTIA officers inspected 242 sellers and detected breaches in 121 cases which represented 50 % of all inspections. Most frequently they discovered products without any information about their manufacturers or importers, without any obligatory information on safe use, and many times without any indication of prices. CTIA imposed 83 fines amounting to CZK 95,500. Administrative proceedings will start with other traders based on violations of their obligations.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
