Key facts

Motion 16.4011 ” Digitalisation. No duplications in data collection”, adopted at the beginning of 2017, requires the Federal Council to ensure that companies do not have to provide the same data and information to different authorities. The Tallinn Declaration signed by Switzerland in the same year stipulates the once-only principle. The multiple use of previously collected data is intended to relieve the burden on companies and citizens.
