Re: GDPR and EnglishForum

Still, GDPR will need to be implemented by Switzerland in some equivalent form. The adjustment appears to be forced by Switzerland's Schengen membership. See EU Directive 2016/680.

Usually a delay in the implementation by a few months or perhaps half a year is no issue but a longer one may have things get tricky. You may remember the uproar perhaps half a year ago when the EU recognised Swiss stock exchange regulations as equivalent but only for one year, as losing that recognition would ben Swiss banks from serving EU residents.

The parliamentary commission on the implementation of GDPR appears to be in no hurry at all though, so we may be up for more action, soon.

Here's some info by the Swiss Commissioner on Data Protection (not availabel in English I'm afraid).
