Information event «Regulatory & Beyond»

20 September 2022, Hotel Allegro/Kursaal Bern, 9.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.

Swissmedic, the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products, is fit for the future! And that applies across the board. We will show how we are using innovative approaches to prepare for the future in therapeutic products regulation, what steps we have already taken in digitalisation and what steps still lie ahead. But that’s not all. We have extended our previous familiar "Regulatory News" event and will look beyond the known regulatory issues by offering information all about the life cycle of medicinal products and medical devices.

Administrative information

Event format
After such a long period of virtual meetings, online sessions and coffee breaks via "Teams", we are delighted to be able to meet in person once more and welcome as many people as possible to the Kursaal in Bern. An important aspect of our Regulatory & Beyond event is meeting in person and getting to know each other.

Since the number of places is limited, we are offering online participation in this information event. The programme is identical (apart from the Swissmedic Info Market).

We want to give as many companies and organisations as possible the opportunity to take part in the live event. We therefore reserve the right, if too many registrations are received, to limit the numbers to a maximum of four people per company or organisation. Everyone else will have the option of taking part online.

Medicinal products
The event is aimed at those who work in Switzerland in the field of regulatory affairs, preparing and submitting authorisation and variation applications for medicinal products, and also at Responsible Persons.

Medical devices
The event is aimed at people, companies and organisations that produce, place on the market and/or use medical devices, and at companies and people with mandates in the area of medical devices regulation.

The presentations will be given in German, French or English (see corresponding details in the programme). The German and French presentations will be interpreted simultaneously into the other respective national language. The English presentations will not be interpreted.

During the event, the presentations will be projected in German or French. All presentations will be published on the Swissmedic website after the event in German, French, Italian and English.
