In a New Statesman article on the Swiss government's abandonment of a [further] EU framework treaty with the EU, some possible negative consequences are mentioned:

even if the collapse of this framework doesn’t mean the existing accords are all torn up, it already has consequences for the short term. The Commission must decide soon whether medical equipment produced in Switzerland can be given equivalence. If not, Swiss companies will have to move production into the EU. Decisions on university funding will follow, as well as on electricity. So while existing accords will likely remain, it’s now unlikely there will be new ones. “Without this agreement, this modernisation of our relationship will not be possible and our bilateral agreements will inevitably age," the European Commission said following Bern’s announcement.

The question may be a bit premature, but have there been any "retaliatory"/negative consequences insofar for Switzerland rejecting the framework treaty with the EU, along the lines of those mentioned in that article?
