Fireworks are sold mostly at marketplaces

(Prague, February 25, 2020) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority evaluated inspections aimed at the offer, sale and storage of pyrotechnics. At the end of last year, it carried out 174 inspections and in 38 cases found violations of Act No. 206/2015 Coll. on Pyrotechnic Articles. Based on the deficiencies identified, it banned the sale of 937 items of fireworks in the value of almost CZK 180,000. "The results of the 2019 inspection confirmed that the situation has not changed much compared to 2018. The sale of pyrotechnic articles to persons under the age of 18 has continued to be carried out, mostly within stand sale at marketplaces. In ordinary shops, the infringement was recorded as regards exceeding the permitted limit on the quantity of stored pyrotechnic articles. Due to the results of the inspection, it is necessary to repeat the inspection of the offer and sale of fireworks in 2020," says Director of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority, Mojmír Bezecný, to the knowledge of the inspection action.
