EU demands with respect to the Swiss-EU agreements

Prof. Christa Tobler describes the EU suggestions for a reform of the institutional side of the Swiss–EU bilateral or sectoral agreements.

The European Union (EU) demands an overhaul in respect to four institutional issues.

The EU has suggested an overhaul of the institutional side of the Swiss–EU bilateral agreements with respect to four issues, namely:

  1. A system of continued updating of the bilateral market access law in view of changes in the relevant EU law;
  2. An interpretation of this law in line with the case-law of the Court of Justice of the European Union on the same EU law matters;
  3. An effective, international mechanism to supervise the application of this law and
  4. An effective, international mechanism for the resolution of disputes between the parties, including a judicial element.
