Eu Switzerland Framework Agreement

Bilateral agreements I are expressed as interdependent. If one of them is pointed at or not renewed, they no longer apply to all of them. According to the preamble to the EU`s decision to ratify the agreements: negotiations between Switzerland and the European Union (EU) for an institutional framework agreement (only Germany) aimed at providing a more sustainable basis for bilateral relations between Switzerland and the EU and paving the way for further market access agreements have stalled in recent months. In the summer of 2019, the EU reacted with the withdrawal of Swiss stock market equivalence. For the Swiss financial centre and other economicly important sectors, it is very important that an agreement between Switzerland and the EU be concluded next year.

In its press release of 7 June 2019, the Federal Council approved the report on consultations on the institutional agreement between Switzerland and the EU, while stressing that some issues still needed to be resolved. The consultation showed that the political left and the right are opposed to the agreement, albeit for different reasons. While the left is particularly critical of the fact that wage protection would be undermined, representatives of the right complain that “foreign judges” could govern Swiss affairs. Since the free trade agreement signed in 1972 and the referendum in which the Swiss decided not to join the European Economic Area in 1992, Switzerland and the EU have been cooperating bilaterally with more than 20 major sectoral agreements and more than 100 small agreements.

The seven agreements are closely linked by their entry into force at the same time and no longer apply simultaneously six months after receiving a notification of non-renewal or termination of one of them.
