Unique identification number (CHRN – Swiss Single Registration Number)
4 March 2022 – The Swiss Single Registration Number (CHRN) is a unique identification number that Swissmedic assigns to Swiss manufacturers, authorised representatives and importers upon request.
Until the MRA (Mutual Recognition Agreement) is updated, Swissmedic is unable to assign a European Single Registration Number (SRN) via EUDAMED for economic operators who are domiciled in Switzerland. To mitigate the consequences of this loss of information and to continue to ensure market surveillance in Switzerland, it is necessary for manufacturers, authorised representatives and importers domiciled in Switzerland to register once with Swissmedic.
