Decisions about medicine registration are issued by the State Institute for Drug Control (ŠÚKL) or European Commission on the grounds of expert assessment of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) if it concerns the so-called European registration, when the medicine is approved by the decision of EC in the whole European Union at once. The ŠÚKL maintains a list of all medicines registered in the Slovak Republic. This list is available also on the website www.sukl.sk. Details concerning the registration of medicines are governed by the Act No. 362/2011 Coll. on Medicines and Medical Aids.
