The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission has issued compliance notices to a number of retailers including Musgraves and Tesco for overcharging. The Commision published its list of enforcement actions, which accounts for the past six months.
Ten Compliance Notices were issued to Traders who charged more for consumer goods than the price displayed, as described by Section 43(3)(c) and contrary to Section 42 of the Consumer Protection Act, 2007 and included a number of SuperValu, Centra, Eurospar and Tesco stores across the country.
Fourteen traders including Dunnes Stores, Spar and Eurospar, Donnybrook Fair, Centra, Tesco, SuperValu and Maxol stores were also found to be in breach of the EC (Requirements to Indicate Product Prices) Regulations 2002.
Isolde Goggin, commission chair said, “The contacts we receive from consumers are crucial in helping the Commission to shine a light on areas where traders are engaging in unfair commercial practices and we welcome contacts from consumers through our helpline on 1890 432 432, Facebook page and website, consumerhelp.ie.”
