Inspections show progress, albeit minimal, on violations of dual price display rules

Though 46 percent of merchants were found to be in breach of dual price display rules during a recent inspection, the situation is gradually improving, the SITA newswire wrote.

Though 46 percent of merchants were found to be in breach of dual price display rules during a recent inspection, the situation is gradually improving, the SITA newswire wrote.

The Slovak Trade Inspection (SOI) recently inspected more than 103,000 price tags in 2,035 retail outlets. It detected shortcomings in 933 of them, which is 45.8 percent.

The first inspection found shortcomings in 727 of 1,478 outlets, or 49 percent. The most frequent mistakes included incorrect dual price display, which the inspectors detected in 13 percent of the inspected products. Another frequent shortcoming was a missing dual display of unit prices, 7 percent of inspected products, and an unpublished conversion rate in 5 percent of outlets.

This more recent inspection showed that a dual price was not displayed on receipts in 1.03 percent of inspected outlets; prices were calculated incorrectly on nearly 5 percent of products; the unit price was calculated wrong on 4.24 percent of products; and the dual price was missing from leaflets in 5.3 percent of outlets.
