Czech Trade Inspection Authority

Česka obchodní inspekce (ČOI) is the Czech Trade Inspection Authority (CTIA) and it falls under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Industry and Trade.  It's basically an enforcement agency. 

The ČOI monitors and inspects both businesses and individuals who supply goods or sells goods and services in Czechland.  It doesn't inspect the qualify of food as that is regulated by the Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority.  However, it does regulate health and safety, storage, transport, and the sale of such products.

It can ban the sale of certain products in the country if they do not comply with Czech regulations.

For minor violations, ČOI inspectors may impose immediate fines of up to 5000 Kč ($230).  For major violations, fines up to 50 million Kč (~$2.3 million) may be imposed.
