What happens if a vendor does not communicate with the ADR entity and, thus, agreement cannot be reached?

Vendors are obliged to cooperate with the ADR entity. If they do not cooperate with an out-of-court resolution of a dispute the Czech Trade Inspection Authority can impose sanctions in administrative proceedings. However, the consumer subsequently has to enforce their claims by different means, usually by taking the case to court.
