Almost half of inspections of trade with solid fuels were defective

(Partial report of 3rd quarter of 2014)

(Prague, December 3, 2014) In the 3rd quarter of 2014, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority focused on sellers that deliver solid fuels to consumers before the start of the winter season. Based on previous finding that consumers are most frequently damaged concerning their rights by suppliers who deliver less fuel for full price, inspections were mostly aimed at fairness of selling. This year’s inspections proved again that half of detected shortcomings consisted of failure to provide declared weight of delivered fuel and subsequent incorrect billing. With regard to the bad inspection results, CTIA inspectors will keep inspecting trade with solid fuels for households till the end of the year.
