Swissmedic and MFDS-Korea sign an agreement on Mutual Recognition for GMP Inspections

Swissmedic and the Korean regulatory authority extend their cooperation in the area of therapeutic products by recognizing each other for GMP Inspections.

Swissmedic, the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products, in cooperation with the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and its partner authority in the Republic of Korea intend to work more closely in the therapeutic products sector. Both the authorities signed an agreement whereby each body can rely on the other’s inspection results relating to Good Manufacturing Practice for medicinal products.

The agreement is designed to facilitate the bilateral trade in medicinal products between Switzerland and Korea and reduce the workload of the relevant authorities in authorizing and monitoring medicinal products. The agreement will also allow for the sharing of other information, documents and inspection reports.
