(Continuous report of 2nd quarter of 2015)
(Prague, September 14, 2015) In the 2nd quarter of 2015, flaws were detected within 30 of 107 inspections carried out by the Czech Trade Inspection Authority within an inspection project focused on purchase of secondary raw materials. Six violations of the Act on Wastes was transferred to the Czech Environmental Inspectorate for further investigations. In total 17 fines amounting to the total of 158,000 CZK were lawfully imposed and use of 7 measuring instruments was prohibited in the evaluated period. Inspectors most frequently detected violations of principles of honest sale, e.g. in several cases vendors paid by tens of Czech crowns less than was the real price of purchased waste, some vendors didn’t inform consumers about prices of purchased raw materials or used scales without valid certification. “Violations of the Act on Wastes as detected by our inspectors were cases of two secondary raw material collection facilities that purchased a part of generally beneficial equipment despite this being literarily prohibited by law. These two flaws as well as other four violations of this Act were transferred to the Czech Environmental Inspectorate who would take further actions,” said Mojmír Bezecný, the Director General of the CTIA.
