The public part of the databaze

The public part of the database is for informational purposes only. Anyone can easily verify whether a person has fulfilled the reporting obligation in relation to his activities or the requirement to report a medical device placed or made available on the market. A legal deadline of up to three years (depending on the risk class of the medical device) applies to the obligation to populate the database with information on medical devices. The public part of the database allows full-text searches of persons, medical devices and Field Safety Notices published since 1. 5. 2015. Previously published Field Safety Notices are available on the website of the State Institute for Drug Control here.

Access for notifiers and professionals

RZPRO aims to provide the competent authorities with rapid access to information (registered in the Czech Republic) about products, authorized representatives, importers, distributors, persons engaged in servicing medical devices, sponsors of clinical trials and Notified Bodies for medical devices, certificates issued by Notified Bodies, on incidents and corrective measures and to data on clinical trials, in order to increase the safety and effective sharing of relevant information between concerned government authorities in the field of medical devices in the Czech Republic.

Persons who notified the Ministry of Health according to the legislation effective before 1. 4. 2015, are considered as registered in accordance with § 26 of the new law on medical devices. If you have complied with this requirement, please wait until you receive the access information to your user account in the unified management of users EREG; access information will be sent on 30. 04. 2015 to data boxes and on 15. 5. 2015 by registered mail addressed to your own hands.
