New pharmaceutical ordinance in Switzerland

Have you already heard about the new medical drug ordinance in Switzerland – especially about Art. 21?


Please find some details by clicking on the title. The article linked describes import regulations for drugs into Switzerland.
The most relevant take-away is:

  • A permission for trading medicines abroad (i.e. outside Switzerland) is not sufficient for the conclusion of manufacturing agreements.
  • With only such a permission, a Swiss company is not entitled to import medicines into Switzerland. The Swiss legislation on therapeutic products does not foresee any sufficient Good manufacturing practice (“GMP”) requirements for the qualified person that are required to monitor and qualify the production of medicines.

Does the new medical drug ordinance have an impact on your supply chain (commercial, VAT, Customs, regulatory license, regulatory permission, ERP etc.)?

Let’s discuss further.
