Official Control Authority Batch Release

In Switzerland, stable blood products and vaccines require official batch release by Swissmedic. The laboratory is a full member of the European OCABR (Official Control Authority Batch Release) network and its releases are also recognised in European Union States without further analytical examinations. In return, batches examined in the EU are eligible for placing on the Swiss market subject to a notification by the relevant OMCL.
