Revision of the Swiss Data Protection Law

Last week, the European Commission spoke on whether the Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP) is equivalent or not to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). But it will be some time before knowing its position. The Commission decided to wait for the decision of the European Union Court of Justice in the Schrems II case. Also, the Swiss authorities were asked to make progress in the ongoing revision of the FADP. At the same time, the SwissCovid contact-tracing application was launched, in conformity with the national measures for guaranteeing privacy and control over personal data of its users. It has already been downloaded by over 800,000 people.
