Report on the results of the control action
(Prague, May 14, 2013) The Czech trade Inspection Authority publishes the results of the control action aimed at offering and selling of goods and provision of services in locations connected with winter sport activities, especially winter ski resorts. The action was held from January 7 to March 31, 2013, and involved all the inspectorates. Breaches of the provisions of the Act on Consumer Protection were detected in 135 of 469 controls (i.e. 29%) and 95 fines totally amounting to 120,600 CZK were imposed on the grounds of the detected deficiencies. “We can say that there have been no significant changes in the inspection findings during the winter touristic season in comparison with the previous year. Unfortunately, this year we have also seen unfairness of sellers who didn’t inform consumers about the prices, failed the requirements for billing or they used uncertified measuring tools. The Czech Trade Inspection Authority will of course continue in these controls not only within the next winter season, but also in the upcoming summer season,” the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority Vladimír Velčovský said.
