EC - Switzerland MRA

The agreement on mutual recognition in relation to conformity assessment has come into operation on 1 June 2002 (OJ L114 on 30/04/2002, amended OJ L68 on 12/03/2003). Chapter 15 details the medicinal products GMP inspection and batch certification.

In order to ensure a proper and uniform implementation and application of Chapter 15 and to allow industry to make the necessary arrangements, an Explanatory Note compliments the MRA text. This note represents the Commission's and the Swiss Authorities' common interpretation of Chapter 15.

However in the practical application further and more detailed interpretation of the Chapter 15 has been requested by industry. Frequently asked questions have been compiled to address issues like territorial application and batch release arrangements. The certificate of GMP compliance for manufactures and batch certificate are posted on this website.
