Swissmedic Medicines Expert Committees

In scientific matters, Swissmedic obtains specialist advice from the Swissmedic Medicines Expert Committees (SMEC). These consist of the Human Medicines Expert Committee (HMEC) in the case of medicinal products for human use and the Veterinary Medicines Expert Committee (VMEC) where veterinary medicinal products are involved. The members of both bodies are appointed by the Agency Council of Swissmedic.

The SMEC support Swissmedic by providing expert reports and advice on the scientific assessment of documentation relating to the authorisation, market surveillance and approval of medicinal products. They perform these activities by answering specialised questions posed both in relation to and independently of pending cases.

To ensure impartial advice, each member of the Swissmedic Medicines Expert Committees discloses his or her interests on an annual basis.
