On Sunday September 27, 2020, a referendum was held in Switzerland, which keeps the door open for a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) between Switzerland and the EU concerning medical devices.
The initiative called for a restriction on the free movement of persons between the EU and Switzerland. A clear majority voted against it. The free movement of persons is one of the pillars of the EU, alongside the free movement of goods. A vote against it would have promoted the Swexit process.
