SWISS FADP – Appoint a Data Protection Advisor

Appoint a Data Protection Advisor


We have a team of Data Protection Advisors (more commonly called “Data Protection Officers”) ready to support you.

The Swiss revised FADP expressly provides for the possibility to appoint a DPO, or “Data Protection Advisor”. Unlike under the GDPR, the designation of a DPO is always optional for private controllers, but stays highly recommended by the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (“FDPIC”).
In its guidance, the FDPIC also emphasizes the importance of the independence of the Data Protection Advisor, meaning that his or her advices on Data Protection should be separate from business’s other activities or the legal representation. A guidance which is in line with the EU GDPR.

Furthermore, Data Protection Advisors should be allowed to raise their views with company management where there are differences of opinion. This is why the option to externalize this function is often the easiest and the most efficient solution.
