To remove the license distribution company CEZ Razpredelenie and sales company CEZ Elektro fact there is no reason. ČEZ insists that consistently perform all the duties imposed on him by the local laws and regulations.Therefore, the local regulator calls for impartial assessment without political interference.

Reasons must be very serious, among them security threats electricity supply, the systematic violation of the license conditions, non-compliance or regulatory guidelines provide false information when applying for a license. Before the suspension of the license must also be granted a period within which the company has the potential for deficiencies - the whole process, where it is transparent, it may take up to several months.
