EU-US Data Protection Framework: Adequacy decision of the EU

10.07.2023 - The FDPIC has taken note of the EU-US Data Privacy Framework and the corresponding EU adequacy decision. Switzerland is also engaged in discussions on a parallel framework with the U.S. (Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework), these discussions are well advanced. As of September 1, 2023, it will be the responsibility of the Federal Council to decide on the adequacy of states under the new Swiss data protection legislation. It will be up to the Federal Council to determine whether the U.S. can be added to the list in due course. Until such a framework is finalized, Switzerland's adequacy list will remain unchanged.
