Winter touristic season wasn’t good for traders

(Final report of 4th quarter of 2015 to 1st quarter of 2016)

(Prague, May 3, 2016) Besides sport venues and skating stadiums, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority focused on public alimentation workplaces and stands with refreshments as well as on rentals with sport equipment during inspections in ski resorts. Mild winter with little snow influenced the business as well as the number of inspections especially in the fourth quarter of 2015. The number of flaws was high despite the low number of inspections. Inspectors detected defects especially concerning hospitality services, namely in one third of all cases. Most frequent defects concerned violations of principles of fair selling when vendors failed to provide declared amount of drinks, especially spirits, and failure to inform consumers about prices of offered products or services. 102 fines amounting to CZK 178,500 were lawfully imposed during the inspection action.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
