Export certificates (Free Sales Certificates, FSC)
are issued solely for products that are defined as medical devices under the terms of the Swiss legislation and for which a certificate of conformity is available, making them marketable in Switzerland
Swissmedic does not issue FSCs for veterinary medical devices or products that are defined as medical devices only in the country of destination, e.g. toothbrushes, instruments for dental laboratories, general laboratory equipment etc.
To order a Free Sales Certificate, please complete the electronic order form and provide all the corresponding documentation (e.g. EC certificate, declaration of conformity, product list in compliance with the requirements of our information sheet, etc.). All orders are submitted electronically with our constantly updated order form.
Please note, that an administrative fee (Art. 4 GebV-Swissmedic) of CHF 200 per hour will be charged for additional administrative work, e.g. due to incomplete or inappropriate documentation sent repeatedly, withdrawal of an order after work has already been carried out or requests for information.
