Guidance for Swiss manufacturers
The necessary update of the medical devices chapter is linked by the EU to progress on the institutional agreement. As the Federal Council informed in a press release dated 19 May 2021 (in German), the EU and Switzerland have held intensive discussions on possible transitional provisions for the MRA based on a proposal from the EU Commission. These talks have not yet led to an agreement.
Swiss Medtech offers practical assistance for the third-country scenario:
