Bazaars and pawn shops don’t issue receipts

(Final report of 2015)

(Prague, January 11, 2016) An inspection action of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority which was aimed at offer and sale of goods and provision of services in bazaars and pawn shops proved numerous flaws in more than a half of 307 inspected workplaces. Inspections focused on bazaars and pawn shops will therefore be included in the Plan of Inspection Activities in 2016. In total 158 fines amounting to CZK 265,500 became effective in the evaluated period. “Besides violations of the Act on Consumer Protection, e.g. failure to issue bills of purchase with all requirements and illegal reduction of the period for exercising the rights from defective performance of purchased second hand products down to seven days, CTIA officers detected also breached of the Act on Selected Measures against Legitimisation of Proceeds of Crime and Financing of Terrorism. Six vendors failed the obligation to identify and inspect a client as determined in this law,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the CTIA.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
