Regulation

There is a constitutional framework for the supervisory activities of the SFBC in Art. 98 of the Federal Constitution of April 18, 1999, which entered into force on January 1, 2000.

The most important legal precepts governing the SFBC's activities and its implementing provisions are found in federal legislation. The SFBC itself also publishes circulars and newsletters.

Finally, there are certain regulations of other bodies with relevance for the SFBC's supervisory activities.

Here you will also find reports and proposed rules and regulations which the SFBC publishes for consultation.

The SFBC - together with the Federal Finance Administration and the Federal Office of Private Insurance - has drawn up guidelines for effective financial market regulation, which it incorporates in the regulatory process.

Information on regulatory projects regarding financial markets supervision are available under www.finweb.admin.ch.

As far as the official text of the Federal Constitution, the Federal Legislation and the SFBC Guidelines is concerned, it is not available in English. You may therefore consult them in German or in French. The SFBC is not providing any official translations in English, as English is not an official language in its jurisdiction.
