At the end of 2017, the Czech Trade Inspectorate of Olomouc and the Moravian-Silesian Region carried out an extraordinary control action aimed at observing the law on the protection of health against harmful effects of addictive substances. In 8 inspections, 6 law violations were found when vendors sold alcohol to persons under 18 years of age. These were mainly wine shops and large food chains.

The Czech Trade Inspectorate of the Olomouc and Moravian-Silesian Regions carried out an extraordinary controlling action aimed at compliance with Act No. 65/2016 Coll., On the protection of health from harmful effects of addictive substances, which, amongst other things, imposes a ban on the sale of alcohol to persons under 18 years of age .

On the 27th and 28th of December, 8 inspections were carried out and the violation of the law was detected in 6 cases . These were wine shops, but mostly large food chains, for example, when alcohol was sold to a juvenile figure in a supermarket despite confirming that he was not 18 years old . The same situation was experienced by inspectors in a restaurant where alcohol was given to a juvenile figurine, despite the fact that the service staff assured him that he was 18 years old .

NUTS Olomouc and Moravia-Silesia region, the use of juvenile female figures in the inspections proved to be good. This form is perceived as a very effective control tool that serves to cultivate the market. Realizing controls is also a powerful preventive signal that compliance with applicable laws is necessary, especially in such a sensitive area as the protection of health from the harmful effects of addictive substances.

CTI has a wide range of positive feedback from both citizens, parents, schools and some entrepreneurs on this method of controlling with help of figurant. Also, in this area, there have been many consumer complaints that would be very difficult to investigate without the use of juvenile figures.
