Laser Pointers, Laser Radiation Events, Lasertag

As of 1st June 2020, new Swiss laws apply to the use of lasers in
Laser pointers, Events involving Laser Radiation, and Lasertag.

https://www.bag.admin.ch/bag/en/home...asershows.html

There, one can click on various sub-sets of info, including "Ban on laser pointers".

EDIT: I made an error in this post. The ban took effect on 1st June 2019, not 2020.

Where do you read that it is banned of June 1, 2020?

It says: "The ban will come into force on 1 June 2019."

Re: Laser Pointers, Laser Radiation Events, Lasertag

Here's the quote I read. Oops, I seem to be a year out of date! Already banned a year ago. Original post now updated.
Laser pointers are hand-held devices that emit laser radiation. In recent years, dangerous laser pointers have come into circulation that can cause serious eye and skin damage. Furthermore, the beams from laser pointers may dazzle the eyes. To prevent these dangers in the future, the Federal Council has banned dangerous laser pointers in Switzerland. The ban will come into force on 1 June 2019.

Further information on the disposal of dangerous laser pointers can be found on the flyer Ban on laser pointers (PDF, 350 kB, 27.02.2019).

You can find detailed information about laser pointers on the fact sheet Laserpointer (PDF, 1 MB, 04.02.2020).
