Exemption authorisations for banned narcotics

The Federal Narcotics Act regulates the use of controlled substances in Switzerland. The FOPH may grant an exceptional licence for certain purposes, for example limited medical research, scientific research, pharmaceutical research and development or prevention measures.  

Trade of prohibited narcotics

The trade of prohibited narcotics for a general unrestricted medical use in a foreign country does not correspond to any of the exceptional purposes according to Article 8, paragraph 5 NarcA and therefore, cannot be authorized.
