The national competent authorities of the European region as defined by the United Nations are invited to take part in the EURIPID Collaboration. New applications must be approved by the Board of Participants and there are technical and legal criteria for the participation. The participation is valid for one calendar year.
The members of the Collaboration have to provide full and continuous access to their complete reimbursement list which contains the following information as a minimum:
- product code
- product name (in local language)

- price information (at least one price type out of the followings: manufacturer price, wholesale price, net retail price, gross retail price).
The applicants have to sign the Framework Partnership Agreement and accept the General Terms and Conditions and the Terms and Conditions of the Use of the EURIPID website. Before the signature of the agreement the Board of Participants usually grants a 3 months trial access to 3 users so that the applicant can check the website and the database.
The members of the Collaboration equally share the cost of maintenance. A fee has to be paid which is defined for each year. Additionally, to the yearly fee newcomers have the cost of the initial data standardisation.
