Single cigarettes and other findings within sale of tobacco products

(Partial report of second quarter of 2013)

(Prague, October 3, 2013) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority monitors offer and sale of tobacco products throughout the year. In the second quarter, inspectors especially focused on sale of the respective assortment in stalls. One or more infringements were detected in one third of 1.007 inspected subjects. “Overall results clearly show that within stall sale of the assortment of tobacco products consumers are not provided with information not only about prices, but also about the products sold. Sale of single cigarettes was proven to 6 sellers and in three cases cigarettes were sold for a different price than indicated on the tobacco stamp. 247 fines amounting to 1.2 million CZK in total were imposed for the above mentioned and other shortcomings that especially included failure to inform about prices, incorrect billing, and use of uncertified measuring tools,” said the Director General of the CTIA Vladimír Velčovský.
