Switzerland’s #1 CH-REP Provider

Switzerland was never a member of the European Union but has traditionally ensured a smooth bilateral flow of goods across borders using a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) with the EU. When the EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) took effect, the MRA has not renewed. Although the Swiss had updated their Medical Device Ordinance (MepV, MedDO) to transpose the MDR into Swiss law, the lack of an MRA meant Switzerland became a “third country” like the UK. That’s why medical device and IVD manufacturers without a registered office in Switzerland must now appoint a local Swiss CH-REP and Swiss Importer. MedEnvoy provides both services.

As Your Swiss Authorized Representative (AR) We Will:

We fully understand the specific requirements imposed on manufacturers by Swissmedic and the Swiss Medical Devices Ordinance (MedDO) and how those mesh with specific EU MDR/IVDR and UK MDR requirements. We will guide you on how to comply with the Swiss requirements most efficiently. 

Advise you on labeling changes to comply with MedDO requirements

Review your labeling to ensure ongoing compliance

Assist in device registrations with Swissmedic

Fulfill vigilance and incident reporting requirements required of Swiss AR
