Sales – 2Q of 2016

(Prague, September 2, 2016) Purchases in the period of seasonal clearance sales and special offers belong among favourite activities of the Czech nation. In case of discounted goods, consumers don’t foresee that traders could use any unfair commercial practice or would mean to harm them. In the second quarter of 2016, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority carried out 1,271 inspections aimed at consumer protection and detected violations of legal regulations in 605 cases. CTIA imposed 520 fines amounting to CZK 4,759,000. “The inspection action repeatedly proved numerous and repeated flaws, especially sufficient or deceitful information about prices of offered products and services. The situation in this field doesn’t show improvements and we will pay due attention to the issue in the upcoming period as well, also based on the fact that special offers and clearance sales are held throughout the year,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director general of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
