Swiss Authorised Representative Service

Are you a Manufacturer domiciled outside of Switzerland and wanting to market your Medical Devices in Switzerland?

Since 26 May 2021, with the full application of the MDR (EU) 2017/745 and having not reached an institutional agreement, Switzerland is officially considered a “Third Country” for Europe.

What is the timetable for appointing a Swiss AR?

Art. 104 of MedDo outlines the following transition periods for the appointment of a Swiss Authorised Representative:

  • by 31 December 2021 for class III devices, class IIb implantable devices and active implantable devices;
  • by 31 March 2022 for non-implantable class IIb devices and class lla devices;
  • by 31 July 2022 for class I devices.

For systems and procedure packs, a Swiss AR must be appointed by 31 July 2022 (Art. 51 paragraph 5).
