Moti­on SPK‑N (19.3962): Faci­li­ta­ti­on of the for­mal requi­re­ments for the dis­clo­sure of per­so­nal data for occup­a­tio­nal old-age, sur­vi­vors’ and disa­bi­li­ty insuran­ce and for acci­dent insurance

Sub­mit­ted text

The Federal Coun­cil is inst­ruc­ted to sub­mit a draft amend­ment to Arti­cle 86a para­graph 5 let­ter b of the Federal Law of 25 June 1982 on Occup­a­tio­nal Reti­re­ment, Sur­vi­vors’ and Disa­bi­li­ty Pen­si­on Plans (BVG) and to Arti­cle 97 para­graph 6 let­ter b of the Federal Law of 20 March 1981 on Acci­dent Insuran­ce (UVG), accord­ing to which the con­sent of the data sub­ject may also be obtai­ned in ano­t­her form that allo­ws pro­of by text.

The Federal Coun­cil is also to exami­ne whe­ther simi­lar chan­ges are necessa­ry in other federal social secu­ri­ty laws.

Justi­fi­ca­ti­on

For­mu­la­ti­ons that impe­de elec­tro­nic busi­ness tran­sac­tions must be eli­mi­na­ted as far as pos­si­ble. This app­lies to the requi­re­ment of writ­ten form in Arti­cles 86a(5)(b) BVG and 97(6)(b) UVG for the con­sent of the data sub­ject to the dis­clo­sure of his or her per­so­nal data. The­se pro­vi­si­ons must the­re­fo­re be sup­ple­men­ted to the effect that con­sent may also be given by other means that allow pro­of by text.

If other federal social insuran­ce laws con­tain pro­vi­si­ons that cor­re­spond to Arti­cles 86a(5)(b) BVG and 97(6)(b) UVG, the Federal Coun­cil should also exami­ne whe­ther fur­ther amend­ments to the law are necessary.
