Our team of lawyers is at your disposal if you need immediate legal assistance related to the inspection in the company.
A company operating in the alcoholic beverages industry can be inspected by several different authorities- the most important of them being the bodies of the national tax administration, the inspection bodies of the Agricultural and Food Quality Inspection and the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection.
There can be multiple causes of inspection activities being undertaken. In the case of alcoholic beverages, quality issues (e.g. product’s incompatibility with the declared properties) or labelling issues are a fairly frequent reason for an inspection.
Due to the level of complications, the help of an experienced lawyer is very often a prerequisite for maintaining the legal security of further activities. It is worth remembering that mistakes made during the inspection activities may in practice prevent or significantly hinder the establishment of facts that are beneficial for the company at a later stage of the dispute with the administrative authority.
We can also advise you in the case of disputes with supervisory authorities (e.g. in proceedings conducted by the inspection bodies of the Agricultural and Food Quality Inspection), both at the administrative stage and we represent clients before administrative courts.
