Both price tags and fairness disappeared with floods

(Partial results of inspections related to floods)

(Prague, July 16, 2013) The aim of the operative control action was to reach higher level of protection of consumers who have found themselves in a difficult life situation after floods. “The Czech Trade Inspection Authority has been aware of higher risk of threats to economic interests and safety of consumers posed by potential sale of poor quality goods or provision of services by vendors who would want to misuse adverse life situation of victims of floods. We increased the number of inspections in the respective areas and to eliminate the use of unfair commercial practices by unfair entrepreneurs. It is regrettable that we found breaches of obligations in 40% of the inspections. Vendors most frequently failed to inform about prices and breached the principles of fair selling,” the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority Vladimír Velčovský said about the extraordinary inspection action. Controls that are focused on potential sale of goods affected by floods continue.
