The approved revision of the Federal Act on Accident Insurance (AIA) requires the associated Accident Insurance Ordinance (AIO) to be adapted. The adapted AIO, as is the case for the revised AIA, is planned to enter into force on 1 January 2017.
Following a protracted process the modification of the AIA was finally adopted in both chambers of parliament. The content of the supplementary message is based on a compromise proposal put forward by the social partners, and was also supported by the insurers. With this initial position the revision of the AIO is limited in principle to the undisputed topics of the revised legislation in the form of technical clarifications. The adaptations at the ordinance level are intended to further improve and simplify specific points for the application of the accident insurance legislation that has worked well.
