Wine festival in Mikulov without measuring tools

(Brno, September 16, 2013) Inspectors of the CTIA in South Moravia are also busy on the weekends. They check sellers at traditional wine festivals where refreshments, local specialities, souvenirs, and other goods or services are offered. “In almost half of the inspections we found infringements. While in Mikulov traders forgot that they have to use certified measuring tools, in Znojmo we detected failures to inform consumers about prices and amounts, incorrect billing and issue of incomplete bill of purchase. However, the misconducts were not serious, so we mostly resolved them by on-the-spot fines,” said Tatiana Neuhybelová, the Director of the CTIA Inspectorate seated in Brno.

Pálavské vinobraní – Mikulov
On Saturday September 6, 2013, CTIA inspectors checked sellers at Pálavské vinobraní in Mikulov. They selected 11 spots of sale and in five cases they detected violations of legal regulations supervised by the CTIA. In none of the cases, officially certified measuring tool was at disposal. Sellers breached their obligations by failing to enable consumers to check correct amount or weight of offered drinks or meals.
