(FINNBAY) – Tampere, 20 March 2014. Barbers and hairdressers in Finland will be inspected by the Finnish Regional State Administrative Agencies on whether they comply with provisions on price indication in their business premises.
In Finland, all service providers must display their prices openly in premises in order for customers to see it easily. Enabling the customers to see the price list of the business without entering the premises has been a mandatory requirement since 2000.
“The purpose of the price indication provisions is that consumers can compare the prices of services more easily when they are able to examine the prices without actually entering the premises,” says spokesperson from the Finnish Regional State Administrative Agency.
The inspection will be handled by the Finnish Consumer Ombudsman and the Regional State Administrative Offices. The authorities will select barbers and hairdressers randomly.
The outcome of the inspection campaign will be disseminated in autumn 2014.
