Don’t buy textile products without marking

(Partial report of 2nd quarter of 2014)

(Prague, September 4, 2014) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority continuously monitors assortment of textile products. The reason is that inspectors repeatedly detect that sellers permanently breach information obligations concerning products, especially by failing to provide sufficient information about composition of textile products, way of maintenance and other information necessary for correct use and maintenance. During the 2nd quarter of 2014, inspectors proved shortcomings in 58.1% of inspections and prohibited selling of almost 5,000 pieces of products amounting to more than half a million CZK. “Consumers should always check from which material textile products are made, how to maintain them and make a decision based on such information. Purchasing such products without respective symbols is a risk for consumers – they can destroy purchased products as a result of incorrect maintenance or an unmarked product can cause problems to allergic consumers when made from materials to which the consumer is sensitive,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
