Complementary and herbal medicines are widely used in Switzerland and enjoy a high level of acceptance by the population. For these product groups, Swissmedic ensures that the main authorisation requirements are respected. Basically, a simplified authorisation procedure is possible for all categories of these medicinal products, in accordance with the general provisions of the ordinance on the simplified authorisation of complementary and herbal medicinal products. Quality, safety and efficacy must be guaranteed in each case.
