Names of manufacturer or importer often missing in inspected toys

(Praha, January 8, 2019) In the third quarter of 2018, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority carried out in total 303 inspections of toys intended for children under 14 years. Violations of legal regulations were discovered in 218 cases. In total 1,032 models of toys were inspected within the inspection. Shortcomings were discovered in case of 686 models and CTIA prohibited marketing of 335 models. “The same shortcomings repeat in some models of toys. Toys haven’t got the precise identification or CE marking of conformity, and their manufacturer or importer to the EU aren’t displayed. Products aren’t equipped with warnings or such information are displayed only in foreign languages, CTIA inspectors also often see cumulating of administrative defects,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
