Switzerland is preparing a national Medical Device ordinance (MepV), as reported by Swiss MedTech. The country is thus prepared to no longer be a direct part of the EU system, Because the negotiations with the EU are likely to fail. Due to these changes, manufacturers from outside Switzerland are only allowed to market their medical devices in Switzerland if they have a Swiss Rep.


Transition periods discussed in this context are:

  • December 2021: Class III, Class IIb implantable devices, active implantable devices

  • March 2022: Class IIa, Class IIb non-implantable devices

  • July 2022: Class I, Systems and procedure packs Article
