Unfair sellers of alcoholic beverages

(Partial report of 2nd quarter of 2013)

(Prague, September 25, 2013) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority permanently monitors sale of alcoholic beverages to consumers and checks whether spirits are sold without certificate of origin or obligatory protective stamps in retail sale. Inspectors of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority focused on such inspection in 1,326 cases in the 2nd quarter of 2013. “Despite we detected violations of laws regulating marking, evidence and health safety only in three cases, we pay due attention to such preventive inspections. Inspectors also check compliance with other obligations stipulated for sale of goods and provision of services. They detected violations of the Act on Consumer Protection and the Act on CTIA in one third of inspections. Within the monitored period, 385 fines amounting to more than 2.7 million CZK were imposed for such breaches,” said Vladimír Velčovský, the Director General of the CTIA.
