Monitoring EU digital policy

The measure is intended to ensure that the Federal Council is informed about developments in EU digital policy and the consequences for Switzerland, and that it can take appropriate measures if necessary.

The primary goal is continual monitoring of legislation on digital policy in the EU. This will be supplemented with a detailed analysis every two years.

An interdepartmental coordination group led by DETEC (OFCOM) and the FDFA (STS Europe Division) will carry out these tasks. The group will discuss current developments regularly and carry out an analysis every two years.

This will advance Digital Switzerland by making it possible to anticipate regulatory developments and their consequences for Switzerland. This in turn will enable the Federal Council and the responsible federal offices to take advantage of the opportunities afforded by digital markets and to reduce the risk of international exclusion.


  • Next analysis and report to the Federal Council: Q1 2023
  • Publication of detailed analysis: Beginning of Q2 2023
