Basic information about the Czech Chamber of Pharmacists
The Czech Chamber of Pharmacists was established in 1991 by Czech National Council Act No. 220/1991 Coll, on the Czech Medical Chamber, the Czech Stomatological Chamber, and the Czech Chamber of Pharmacists. It now functions as a self-governing non-political status organization that brings together pharmacists throughout the Czech Republic. The Czech Chamber of Pharmacy acts as a legal entity.
The Czech Chamber of Pharmacists meets the conditions for practicing the profession of pharmacy and thus guarantees the expertise of its members, in addition to providing them with further professional training in the field. It defends the professional interests and rights of its members, protects their professional honor, as well as providing them with legal assistance.
The chamber members are professionals performing pharmacy activities and are registered in the list of members by the organization.
The head of this organization is the president Mgr. Aleš Krebs, Ph.D., the role of vice president is now held by PharmDr. Martin Kopecký, Ph.D.
The highest body of the chamber is the annual congress of delegates. There are presented current problems and set priorities for the following period. This convention is attended by elected representatives of the District Association of Pharmacists (OSL).

In 1997, the Czech Chamber of Pharmacists became a member of the European Union of Pharmacists (PGEU), based in Brussels.
