: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. CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM:
Medical devices are classified along the EU model into Classes I, IIa, IIb, III, and IV. TIMEFRAME:
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. LICENSE VALIDITY:
Medical devices can remain on the Swiss market for as long as their CE Mark is valid. AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE:
An EU authorized representative is required.
