The existence of the neutrinoless double beta (0νββ) decay is one of the most intriguing open questions in the neutrino physics field. Despite many large-scale experiments have aimed to measure the reaction for decades, it has not yet been observed. Therefore, accurate theoretical calculations on 0νββ are crucial. To describe the double beta decay processes reliably one needs a possibility to test the involved virtual transitions against experimental data. In this work we manifest how to utilise the charge-exchange and ordinary muon capture (OMC) data in the study of 0νββ decay.
