Amendment of the UVG in connection with the Motion 11.3811 Darbellay

On March, the 2nd 2022, the Federal Chambers refused to delete the Motion 11.3811 Darbellay "To close the gaps in accident insurance". As a result, the administration is currently responsible for amending the UVG and, if necessary, other related regulations, with a view to guaranteeing the payment of daily allowances in cases where the incapacity for work is due to a relapse or to the late after-effects of an accident that occurred when the insured was younger, without professional activity and therefore without UVG insurance cover.

The consultation procedure for this project began on 15 September 2023 and will run until 15 December 2023. The procedure is being conducted electronically. The project and the consultation dossier are available at the website Proc├ędures de consultation en cours (
