Pharmacies (including hospital pharmacies) in the Czech Republic will be required to verify the authenticity of medicines and ‘decommission’ them according to the EU Directive 2011/62/EU - also called the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) before the medicines are supplied to the patients.
Pharmacies will have to adapt their information systems to create a connection to Czech Medicnes Verification System (CZMVS). More information available in the documents - section "general information" and Czech versions of the presentations for the pharmacists..
The end-user registration necessary to connect to the national authentication system is described in the detailed instructions here:

No charges/fees are required from pharmacies to be paid to NOOL.
NOOL offers a connection to the Alert Management System (AMS), where it is possible to quickly and conveniently resolve alerts via an API or web interface. More information about AMS functionalities can be found in the attachments below and on the "Alerts Management" section.
