Switzerland Authorised Representative
Switzerland Medical Device Regulations
Medical devices are regulated by : Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Product
Mutual recognition agreement (MRA) between EU and Switzerland: Possible situations
Depending on the terms of MRA, this situation will exempt the manufacturer from EU member states from the Swiss Authorized Representative(AR) requirement. European AR will be accepted as same as Swiss ARs and vice versa. Manufacturers outside the EU and Switzerland will still need to appoint EU AR or Swiss AR.
This situation will require manufacturers from the EU and outside of the EU to appoint a Swiss AR. Between 26th May 2021 and the MRA update, Switzerland will be considered a third country for the EU during the transition period. MedDo will need to get updated suitable to the situation. Depending on the MRA status between EU and Switzerland and the manufacturer’s location, the manufacturer has to decide if they should appoint Swiss AR.
