What is it? Why is it important?

The Swissmedic portal allows access to the various eGov services of Swissmedic. It offers a secure electronic communication platform between study investigators and Swissmedic.

In Switzerland, the portal service eSubmissions is the electronic tool for the submission of clinical studies with MDs and standardized transplants

What do I need to do?

To use the portal, you must sign a user agreement with Swissmedic.

When planning MD or transplant studies, ask a user administrator or an account administrator at your institution to help you with the creation of a user account.
