(Prague, January 11, 2017) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority doesn’t focus only on compliance with the Act on Consumer Protection, but also with the EU Regulation which for example prohibits marketing of illegally cut wood and products made from such wood in the EU internal market. The Regulation imposes also other obligations on commercial entities and vendors. Sale of such products has become increasingly more demanded by consumers because some of them buy more firewood due to limited possibilities to produce or cut the wood on their own. CTIA officers aimed at compliance with legal regulations on timber trade and carried out 94 inspections during three months. The detected violations of legal regulations in 32 cases.
