Animal Products to Switzerland

Switzerland is not a member state of the European Union (EU). However, Switzerland requires the same certificates as the European Union for most commodities. Prior to preparing to export, exporters should have their Swiss importers confirm with the pertinent Swiss authorities. For commodities where the importer verifies an EU certificate is required, please refer to the general information file for the European Union.

Language requirement for Certificates
Switzerland will accept English only certificates. They do not require English certificates to be bilingual.
