Note on the availability of medicinal products
It is further pointed out that the Register of Proprietary Medicinal Products exclusively reflects the marketing authorization status of a proprietary medicinal product; it depends on further factors outside the area of responsibility of the BASG whether the proprietary medicinal product is actually marketed in Austria. In this context, please also refer to our information on the availability of medicinal products.
It should be noted that each authorized person has to register only once. This is because the initial registration as a user includes a so-called 'administrator authorization'. In order to obtain this authorization a legitimation of management board, a so-called Letter of Authorization (LoA), is required. In addition, an actual valid excerpt from the company register (or a foreign equivalent) must be provided.
Administrators can grant (administrator) rights to other persons in their area of responsibility, make changes to these rights or withdraw them again. The creation of additional users is done by the administrator. The administrator agrees that his contact data will be passed on for this purpose. If additional users are granted rights by the administrator, the same duties of care regarding user identification and personal password apply to these authorized persons as to the administrator himself.
If an already created organization requests another registration, the administrator of the already created organization will be informed.
The user identification and the personal password must be kept carefully in order to prevent unauthorized access by third parties.
Timeliness of the data in the Register of Proprietary Medicinal Products and BASG pronouncements

Accessibility of documents from the Register of Proprietary Medicinal Products
The Federal Office for Safety in Health Care (BASG) is obligated under Section 27 of the German Medicines Act to enter drug specialties that have a marketing authorization, registration, or approval for parallel import into the Drug Specialties Register. The BASG does not assume any responsibility for the accessibility of the documents listed in the Register of Proprietary Medicinal Products; the accessibility of these documents is the responsibility of the marketing authorization holder.
