Changes to template for Information for healthcare professionals VMP / Changes to template for Package leaflet VMP


In keeping with the therapeutic products ordinances, Swissmedic has harmonised the terms used for the manufacturing companies and companies holding marketing authorisation in the German versions of the Information for healthcare professionals VMP and Package leaflet templates.

In these documents, the feminine forms “Herstellerin” [manufacturer] and “Zulassungsinhaberin” [marketing authorisation holder] are used. The marketing authorisation holders may adapt previously authorised texts with the masculine forms “Hersteller” and “Zulassungsinhaber” at their own responsibility and without notifying Swissmedic when the opportunity arises.

The revised templates are valid as of 1 March 2022.
