Consultation on the Passenger Name Records Act PNRA

Terrorists and other dangerous criminals operate around the globe, online, in networks and across borders. They regularly use airlines as a means of transport. The use of data on airline passengers, internationally known as passenger name records (PNRs), has already proven effective in other countries for fighting terrorism and other forms of serious crime. If Switzerland is to be able to use this efficient instrument, it needs to enact the required legislation. For this reason, the Federal Council opened the consultation process for the Passenger Name Records Act (PNRA) on 13 April 2022. The consultations are scheduled to conclude by 31 July 2022.
