Starting point

As the first parliamentary initiative in Switzerland, the postulate Moser 08.3223 in 2009 called for human biomonitoring (HBM) in Switzerland. In the meantime, the FOPH has responded to the postulate by conducting an inventory and initiating a pilot study.

An initial report, the Federal Council’s response to the parliamentary intervention Moser 08.3223, was published in 2009 and gave an overview of the HBM projects in Switzerland up to that time. In May 2017, a second report was submitted to the Federal Council on the situation and outlook for biomonitoring in Switzerland.
