Toys for kids from 3 to 14 years with numerous flaws

(Interim report of 1st quarter of 2015)

(Prague, July 7, 2015) Toys and their safety remain one of the priorities of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority. The objective of surveillance is to search for anonymous and risky products in the market, prevent further sale of toys without CE marking as well as toys unequipped with warnings and information about why they are not suitable for children of certain age, and prohibit further distribution of dangerous toys. In the market there is no place for toys containing obligatory information only in a foreign language. In the 1st quarter of 2015, flaws were discovered in two thirds of inspected workplaces with the assortment of toys and 141 fines amounting to 1 million CZK were imposed. “Permanently high ratio of defects concerning sale of toys which are intended for vulnerable users – kids – is the main reason for the Czech Trade Inspection Authority to pay attention to the whole distribution chain and search for commercial entities responsible for distribution of toys from other EU member states in the Czech market. In the upcoming period we will focus on distributors of toys from third countries because they play major role in importing defective products that fail safety standards and requirements of applicable legal regulations,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
