Electronic proof of identity project (e-ID)

Federal Office of Justice

Key facts

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) has audited the Federal Office of Justice’s (FOJ) project to introduce state-recognised electronic proof of identity (e-ID programme) for the first time. In March 2023, the Federal Chancellery classified this as a DTI key project. The FOJ launched the project immediately after the Federal Act on Electronic Identification Services had been rejected in the referendum on 7 March 2021. It is a cross-departmental undertaking that requires close cooperation and coordination between numerous offices.
