SWITZERLAND: Reached agreement between Swiss Medtech and Swiss CA

The Swiss medical technology industry and patient care association (Swiss Medtech) has reached an agreement with the Swiss authorities (FOPH (BAG) & Swissmedic). This has resulted in different labelling requirements for MDD/AIMD and MDR devices such as:

  • MDD/AIMD devices (all classes) can have the importer and CH-REP listed in a delivery note/packaging slip. Therefore, the obligation to be stated in a declaration directly on product, packaging or IFUs is not required anymore.
  • The above requirement is also established for importers for MDR devices (all classes). Nevertheless, the CH-REP will still need to be indicated on the label, except for MDR Class I devices, which enjoy a transitional period until 31 July 2023  (the CH-REP indication on the delivery note/packing slip suffices). Swiss MedTech nevertheless recommends to already indicate the CH-REP on a device label, as part of the transition to the new Regulation.

As a result of this agreement, MedDO’s obligations for economic operators have been updated (please see below an extract). These changes intend to also alleviate the existing supply problems the Swiss market is experiencing.
