Summer touristic season was slightly better than last year

(Final report of 2015)

(Prague, November 18, 2015) The evaluation stated in the headline doesn’t relate to the weather or vendors’ earnings, but the results of inspections by the Czech Trade Inspection Authority focused on sale and services connected with the summer touristic season. Inspectors visited 1,351 workplaces offering goods or providing seasonal services and detected various breaches of obligations stipulated to traders by generally binding legal regulations in one third of all cases. In total 410 fines amounting to 930,500 CZK were lawfully imposed for these violations during the inspection project. CTIA prohibited sale of 902 pieces of product that failed conditions for being placed on the market – their value was about 74,000 CZK. Inspected entities most frequently violated principles of fair sale as well as the obligation to inform consumers about prices. “Vendors’ discipline improved when compared with inspections of the summer touristic season last year, but the ratio of violations is still too high for us to present the Czech Republic as a tourist friendly country. It would be a pity if the Czech Republic would be evaluated as a country not worth visiting anymore especially in foreign tourists’ reviews – this depends on the behaviour of every entrepreneur,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the CTIA.
