Swiss Data Protection Representative


EDPO provides high-quality data protection representative services in Switzerland

The Swiss Data Protection Law enters into force on 1st September 2023 and has significant implications for non-Swiss companies doing business in Switzerland.

Similarly to what the GDPR requires from non-EU companies, non-Swiss controllers that are based outside Switzerland and offer goods or services to individuals in Switzerland or monitor the behaviour of such individuals, most likely have to appoint a Data Protection Representative in Switzerland (see complete list of conditions below).

Non-compliance with the law can result in significant fines and damage to a company’s reputation. It is crucial for non-Swiss companies to comply with the new requirements to avoid any legal or financial consequences.

Our sister company based in Switzerland offers Swiss Data Protection Representative services. Contact us now for more information about the Swiss Representative or pre-register before 31 August 2023 and get a 20% discount.
