IT standards are used especially
Standards at the federal level are administered by the Federal IT Steering Unit (FITSU). The Federal IT Council (FITC) acts as purchaser and decision-making instance. The responsibilities and steps are defined in the standardisation process contained in the standardisation directive. The approved standards are binding for the entire Federal Administration.
The eCH association, launched by the FITSU, advocates on behalf of eGovernment standards in Switzerland. eCH facilitates electronic collaboration among authorities and between authorities and private persons, businesses, organisations, and teaching and research institutions through the adoption and coordination of relevant standards. According to the ICT Strategy of the Federal Administration, eCH standards concerning the Federal Administration are adopted as part of the standardisation process.
