** From SWISSMEDIC: Swiss authorised representative (CH-REP): “If the manufacturer of a medical device does not have its registered place of business in Switzerland, its products may only be placed on the market once an authorised representative domiciled in Switzerland has been appointed (Art. 51 para. 1 MedDO and Art. 44 para. 1 IvDO). This also applies to manufacturers with their registered place of business in the EU.”
