Inspections of sale of Christmas goods

(Final report – 2015)

(Prague, February 10, 2016) During the inspection project of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority aimed at sale of Christmas goods, flaws were detected in almost a third of 945 inspections. These flaws didn’t significantly differ from breaches discovered during other projects focused on compliance of obligations within sale of products to consumers. Based on detected violations of generally binding legal regulations, in total 172 fines amounting to CZK 282,000 were imposed during the inspection project. “Incorrect billing was one of the most frequent flaws discovered by our inspectors, especially within Christmas sale of fish. In some cases, wrong amounts billed to the detriment of consumers exceeded CZK 100. There were less findings within inspections of other Christmas assortment which is a positive result,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
