Notes on the Dispatch of 15.9.2017 concerning the complete revision of the Federal Data Protection Act: the FDPIC's general assessment

15.09.2017-The rapid development of information and telecommunications technology and the related digitalisation of society have required the Council of Europe and the European Union to further develop their data protection legislation, and have now necessitated the complete revision of the Federal Data Protection Act, which originally came into force in 1993. The draft act prepared by the Federal Council has the aim of increasing the protection of data by improving the transparency of data processing and increasing the options that data subjects have to control their own data. In addition, the revision of the Act should ensure consistency between the level of data protection in Switzerland and that in the EU. Having a level of data protection that is comparable with that in EU states is particularly important for Swiss businesses, especially because the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR), which comes into force at the end of May 2018, will have a direct effect on many Swiss enterprises.
