Sellers of solid fuels deceive

(Final report of 2013)

(Prague, February 20, 2014) In almost half of inspections carried out by the Czech Trade Inspection Authority concerning sellers of solid fuels in 2013, the inspectors detected breaches of information obligations and principles of fair sale. Sellers most frequently failed to inform consumers about prices of offered fuels, further they damaged their rights by failing to provide ordered weight and incorrectly billed delivered fuels. Last but not least they used weighing instruments without valid certification. Ban on use of 11 pieces of uncertified measuring tools was imposed and a total of 39 fines amounting to 107,500 CZK were imposed within the inspection action. Other proceedings have not ended, yet.

 

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
