Supervision of federally guaranteed oceangoing vessels

Federal Office for National Economic Supply, Swiss Maritime Navigation Office

Key facts

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) already audited the federal guarantees for oceangoing vessels in 2016 and 2018. Those audits revealed considerable shortcomings in supervision. This latest audit was aimed at assessing whether these shortcomings had been adequately addressed. While cooperation between the relevant offices has become closer, there are still some supervisory shortcomings.
