National collaboration

Collaboration with external national (and international) stakeholders is a fundamental element that permits Swissmedic to carry out its legal mandate, agreement. Ensuring that therapeutic products are safe is an overriding priority.
Collaboration is based on a relationship that creates and maintains trust, and one that promotes mutual understanding.

National network

  • Patients / consumers and their associations / organisations
  • Healthcare professionals
  • The therapeutic products industry and its associations / organisations
  • Service providers from the therapeutic products industry
