The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) has overall responsibility. It is working with the authorisation holder DRAC to provide the necessary medical and scientific information (in accordance with Art. 9 of the Iodine Tablets Ordinance).
The iodine tablets will be distributed by the federal government directly to households, workplaces and public facilities within 50 km of the Swiss nuclear power plants.
In the Iodine Tablets Ordinance procurement, distribution and quality monitoring of the tablets are delegated to the Armed Forces Pharmacy as the centre of excellence.
The Armed Forces Pharmacy works with the permanent “Swiss Iodine Tablets Office”. The Office is currently domiciled with ATAG Wirtschaftsorganisationen AG in Bern.
