The FDPIC regularly participates in the meetings of the Consultative Committee under the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data (Convention 108). In November 2020, a representative of the FDPIC was elected to the Bureau of the Consultative Committee to Convention 108, which manages the committee's work between plenary sessions. This means that, following a short break, the FDPIC is once again actively represented in the Convention 108 Bureau.
In order to modernise Convention 108 and its Additional Protocol 181, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted Amendment Protocol 223. This Protocol, known as Convention 108+, will enter into force on 11 October 2023, provided that at least 38 States Parties have ratified the Protocol by this date.
Switzerland should ratify the Protocol of Amendment when the revised DPA enters into force.
