Modernisation project for the Official Publications Centre

Federal Chancellery

Key facts

The Official Publications Centre (OPC) of the Federal Chancellery (FCh) manages the federal law publication platform which receives thousands of visitors every day. After an initial attempt (abandoned in 2010), the OPC started a new modernisation project for its system in 2014. The cost of the project is estimated at nearly CHF 14.7 million. The first project phase, the move to the primacy of electronic versions of official publications, was successfully completed in 2016. A second phase is currently underway. It aims to replace the existing system which has reached the end of its life cycle. The concept phase is complete but implementation is experiencing difficulties.
