Cassis de Dijon principle

According to the Cassis de Dijon principle, products lawfully produced and marketed in the EU can also be sold in Switzerland without restriction. Since food products are particularly sensitive, a special regulation applies to this category.

Lists of approved Swiss establishments

The cantonal authorities responsible issue Swiss businesses with the operating permits required by current legislation. Permits issued in accordance with Swiss law also entitle their holders to export to the EU.
