Adaptation of the Guidance document Packaging for human medicinal products HMV4

18.10.2019

Reformulation of instruction in the chapter 6.4:

  • Statement of the active substance is optional for CHM.
    No INN is issued for substances or preparations of plant origin, and it is therefore recommended to state a short form of the active substance name for herbal remedies (in two official Swiss languages, e.g. Baldrianextrakt or extrait de valériane (for valerian extract), Baldriantinktur or teinture de valériane (for valerian tincture)).

The new version of the affected document takes immediate effect.
