Switzerland wants to step up its fight against counterfeit medical products. The Federal Council has put out for consultation until April 2nd a project to ratify the Council of Europe Convention to improve collaboration between countries and repress fraud. Adaptations of the law should improve the exchange of information and opportunities for criminal investigations. They also aim to clarify the legal situation in the brokerage of therapeutic products. This is to introduce the possibility to monitor email and communications, and the use of secret investigations, in the same way as fight against narco-trafficking.
