Register system

According to article 4 of the Federal Statistics Act (FStatA), the institutions of federal statistics must limit the administrative burden on data suppliers (individuals, enterprises and authorities).

To this end, since 2007 the FSO has implemented a strategy to use wherever possible, administrative data that already exists within the public administration instead of conducting surveys (on paper, online or by telephone).

Focus on

UID-Einheiten (Unternehmen)

Enterprises

Öffentlichkeit

Person / Household

Gebäude

Building


The Swiss E-government steering committee has tasked the FSO with the responsibility for “Data exchange between registers” (enterprises, persons and buildings).
