(Praha, May 19, 2015) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority in cooperation with the Czech Ice Hockey Association prepared an extraordinary inspection action which covered offer and sale of goods and services during the Ice Hockey World Championships in Prague and Ostrava. Inspectors carried out in total 232 inspections directly at sport venues where ice hockey games were played as well as other places where ice hockey fans could go for refreshments and purchases. Aim of the inspections were not only restaurants and stalls with refreshments and taxi cabs but also sale of various goods and souvenirs as well as other services related with the championships. “Our inspectors detected flaws within more than a half of inspections. They imposed 58 on-the-spot fines amounting to almost 90 thousand CZK for less severe misconducts. Other 66 inspection subjects will be imposed fines in administrative proceedings,” said Jan Štěpánek, the Director of the Inspectorate of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority based in Prague.
The complete press release is available in the attachement.
