Vendors in border regions offer fakes and fail to inform about prices

(Final report from inspections of marketplaces in border regions)

(Prague/Pilsen/Ústí, July 18, 2013) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority cooperated with other surveillance bodies within an extraordinary action focused on marketplaces in border regions. CTIA inspectors checked compliance with the Act on Consumer Protection and other legal regulations in the inspection competence of the CTIA. “Results are not encouraging for consumers. Within 345 inspections, one or more breaches were detected in more than 75% of cases, including one third of sellers who breached law when offering or selling fakes and deceiving consumers. Another third of sellers didn’t properly inform buyers about prices of products,” the Director General of the CTIA Vladimír Velčovský evaluated the results of the inspection action.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
