:Medical device licensing in Switzerland is governed by Swissmedic, the Swiss agency for Therapeutic Devices. Devices that have a CE Mark do not require additional registration, but Swissmedic must be notified before placing certain types of devices, including Class I and IVD devices, on the market.
Medical devices are classified along the EU model into Classes I, IIa, IIb, III, and IV.
The EU registration process takes about 4-6 weeks after submission for Class I devices. For the other classes, it depends on the contract with the notified body and the type of device.
Medical devices can remain on the Swiss market for as long as their CE Mark is valid.
An EU authorized representative is required.
