Task and obligations of a Swiss importer

With the introduction of the revised MedDO (Medical Device Ordinance), every distributor who imports a medical device automatically becomes a Swiss importer and must register at Swissmedic to obtain a CHRN number. To date, more than 1,500 Swiss importers have done so. Their tasks and obligations are set out in the Swiss MedDO but refer mostly to the European MDR (Medical Device Regulation) – despite the fact the Switzerland is now a third country to the EU. How can the distributers best fulfill their task? Two experts, Jasminka Roth (The Tao of Excellence) and Christoph Schär (QUNIQUE GmbH), will present their views, lead through the workshop and will also be happy to answer your questions. Please send us your most urgent questions already when registering.
