The Register of Medicinal Products is a state register, the purpose of which is to keep account of all medicinal products and their packages sold in Estonia.

The Register of Medicinal Products includes basic data for each medicinal product, for example active substance, pharmaceutical form, strength, information about the marketing authorisation, the last date of import etc. Summary of product characteristics (SPC) and package leaflet (PIL) are added to all authorised medicinal products.

The register also contains data about the reimbursement of the medicinal products (data on the discount rate), reference price and information on medicinal products which have a retail price lower than or equal to the reference price.

The register also holds the unique codes attributed to each package size which are used for identification of the packages in information systems and information exchange in health care. The package code is virtual, it is not printed on the package or prescription. This code is used for example by the e-prescription database and databases of pharmacies and wholesalers.
