Is the use of an EU authorisation in Switzerland subject to the same expiration date of the EU authorisation or is there a “Swiss” expiration date?

Reference to an EU approval also applies to a Swiss company that uses a substance of Annex 1.17 ORRChem for the same purpose as an authorisation holder in the EU for the duration of the EU approval as defined by the European Commission.

The number issued by the European Commission for a particular approval referred to by a user of a substance of Annex 1.17 ORRChem in Switzerland, or the authorisation number awarded by the Notification Authority for an exemption pursuant to Annex 1.17 Number 2 paragraph 4, must be notified to the Notification Authority by the user in the context of its reporting requirement pursuant to Annex 1.17 Number 3 paragraph 1 ORRChem. The information reported by the users is made available by the Notification Authority to the cantons for fulfilling their enforcement tasks.
