Swissmedic – for therapeutic products you can trust

We are the Swiss agency for the authorisation and supervision of therapeutic products (medicinal products and medical devices). We fulfil our legal mandate and work with partner authorities on a national and international basis.

We endeavour to ensure that authorised therapeutic products are of high quality, effective and safe.


By doing so, we make a considerable contribution towards protecting the health of humans and animals, and we also participate in safeguarding Switzerland as a location for industry and research.
