Payment of costs for expert activities conducted upon request

The conditions and payment process for the reimbursement of costs for expert activities conducted upon request (Section 112 of Act No 378/2007 Coll., on Pharmaceuticals, as amended, and Section 27 of Act No 296/2008 Coll., on Safeguarding the Quality and Safety of Human Tissues and Cells Intended for Use in Man and on Amendments to Related Acts) are stipulated in SÚKL guidelines UST-29 and UST-36. The currently effective versions of guidelines UST-29 and UST-36 specify the conditions and procedures applicable to the payment process for the reimbursement of costs for expert activities conducted upon request.    

  • In compliance with Section 112 of Act No 378/2007 Coll., on Pharmaceuticals and on Amendments to Some Related Acts, as amended; 
  • In compliance with Section 27 of Act No 296/2008 Coll., on Safeguarding the Quality and Safety of Human Tissues and Cells Intended for Use in Man and on Amendments to Related Acts, the conditions and procedures applicable to reimbursement are specified in SÚKL guidelines UST-29 and UST-36. The pricelists of costs reimbursements are annexed to these guidelines.

The payments covering the costs incurred are to be made by bank transfer prior to the submission of the application. The variable symbol for the payment to be made can be obtained from the interactive form available from SÚKL's website. Please note: while this form is being completed, the entered account number, which must be in the IBAN format, is being checked for correctness. For details concerning the completion of this form please refer to guidelines UST-29 and UST-36.

Following the completion and posting of the form, the data you have entered will be recorded in the database and you will be presented with the Costs for Expert Activities Conducted upon Request Payment Confirmation screen which will give the variable symbol for you to use when making the payment. This payment receipt is to be presented in two copies together with the application (If application submitted in hard-copy). Once the payment is credited to the relevant account, we will endorse this fact using the Cost Payment Receipt. We will send this receipt back to you. The document endorsed as mentioned above will serve as your accounting proof of payment covering the costs of the expert activity.

Please note: if you post incorrect data in the form and you identify the error only subsequently, please complete the form again using correct data and print a new receipt. SÚKL processes only data on forms submitted to SÚKL, e.g. together with an application.

If the incorrectly generated application has already been submitted to SÚKL and you do not wish to make another payment and then claim a refund of the previous payment made under the incorrect variable symbol (VS), please attach to the new receipt a cover letter requesting the use of the payment made under the incorrect VS with this new VS and the deletion of the original form from the database. If an incorrectly generated application has already been submitted to SÚKL, it is necessary to inform SÚKL to this effect and apply for deletion of the original form from the database and for refund of the payment made.

The payments set in the guidance documents UST-29 and UST-36 should be made in Czech crowns. When making the payment it is necessary to inform the bank that the payment must be transferred to the SUKL account in the required currency and full amount and any costs of bank transfer/service charges shall be borne by the payer.

If the payment is not made under the correct variable symbol or if made collectively for several variable symbols, it shall be considered as an incorrect payment and shall be either refunded as a whole, or – where collective payments are concerned – partly matched with the correct variable symbol and the rest refunded as excess payment. Transferring payments from one variable symbol to another shall no longer be accepted.
