Q: Are there any requirements for the introduction of serialisation in Switzerland yet?

A: Swissmedic does not provide any specific guidelines in this respect. According to the new Swiss Medicinal Products Act (HMG) Article 17a, this will continue to be on a voluntary basis. However, large pharmaceutical companies and the vips (Association of Pharmaceutical Companies in Switzerland) have established corresponding organisation Swiss Medicines Verification Organisation (SMVO) to serialise Swiss medicinal products.
