Monitoring AI guidelines

Monitoring how the Federal Administration’s AI guidelines (adopted by the Federal Council in November 2019) are applied and how up-to-date they are.

Considering the highly dynamic technology involved in AI, it is vital that the AI guidelines remain up-to-date and capable of being applied in practice. To this end, The Federal Office of Communications (OFCOM) invites the relevant units of the Federal Administration every two years to report on how they are applying the guidelines and to make proposals for any necessary adjustments to them. OFCOM compiles this feedback and uses it to identify possible action areas.


First monitoring period is currently underway; monitoring report will be published by the end of 2022; next monitoring period in 2024
