Validity of GMP certificates during the COVID-19 pandemic
18 February 2022 – For companies with a valid establishment license for the manufacture of medicinal products and transplant products, Swissmedic issues GMP certificates on request. GMP certificates from Swissmedic show the date of the inspection on which the certificate is based. They do not contain an expiry date. However, in accordance with the practice for GMP certificates in the EU database EudraGMDP, it is often assumed by the companies or by other authorities that GMP certificates based on an inspection which took place more than 3 years ago are no longer meaningful in terms of compliance status and therefore lose their validity.
