(Prague, May 5, 2017) Last winter brought more snow but also more flaws detected within inspections carried by the Czech Trade Inspection Authority. There were 477 inspections focused on offer and sale of products and provision of services especially in mountain ski resorts, sport venues, ice and skating rinks, cable cars and ski lifts, ski rentals, and public alimentation facilities. CTIA officers detected violations of legal regulations in 151 cases, given that they carried out by 72 inspections more than during the season 2015 to 2016. There were by 3.5% more detected violations than in the previous year. “The inspection action carried out by the Czech Trade Inspection Authority proved that in touristic centres and other tourist destinations, consumer rights are still breached, especially in the area of alimentation. Most frequent flaws included the failure to inform consumers about prices of offered products and services. The CTIA will therefore continue its inspection activities next winter,” said the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority Mojmír Bezecný.
