(Prague, 22 March, 2021) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority evaluated inspections of compliance with legal regulations within the sale of alcohol and tobacco. During 2020, it carried out a total of 5,382 inspections and found violations in almost 44%. "Frequent breaches of the ban on the sale or serving of alcoholic beverages to persons under the age of 18, which were detected in 171 of 237 inspections with figurants, can be considered particularly serious. It is therefore clear that it is not a problem for persons under the age of 18 to purchase alcoholic beverages in the market network. Due to the high level of health risk posed by the consumption of alcoholic beverages especially to juveniles, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority will continue these inspections in 2021," says Mojmír Bezecný, Director of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority, on the conclusions of the inspections.
