Risky purchases of scooters without marking and instructions

(Prague, August 27, 2013) Scooters still are among popular toys and the offer in the market is wide. The Czech Trade Inspection Authority continuously checks whether these products are also safe for their users. “Inspectors checked 44 types of children scooters in total within an inspection action in which 85 business entities were inspected. They detected shortcomings in 16 models – e.g. CE marking of conformity was missing, information about manufacturer, importer or distributor as well as obligatory information and warnings for consumers were not provided. In some cases, information was available only in a foreign language. Four scooters were collected for safety assessment and all of them failed the standard’s requirements,” said the Director General of the CTIA Vladimír Velčovský.
