Earlier today (23-November-2022) Swissmedic released two updated guidelines "Guideline Amendments Clinical Trials" and "Clinical Trial Application Dossier".

This guideline gives detailed Instructions for submitting changes and for reporting during the course of a clinical trial. These instructions concern changes and reporting related exclusively to clinical trials of Category B and C.
