The Federal Customs Administration is now called the Federal Office for Customs and Border Security (FOCBS)

(Last modification 03.01.2022)

Bern, 03.01.2022 - The name change is part of the development of the Federal Customs Administration.

The name of the Federal Customs Administration (FCA) was changed to the Federal Office for Customs and Border Security (FOCBS) on 1 January 2022. The Federal Council had already issued the relevant decrees on 12 June 2020. The name change will happen gradually: the website has already been modified. Temporary redirects mean that users can still access the previous webpages.

In addition, the FOCBS's applications will now be gradually adapted to reflect the new name, above all the QuickZoll customs declaration app for tourist traffic.

The name change is only one element in the transformation. The DaziT digitalisation and transformation programme, the organisational refinement and the new standardised "customs and border security specialist" job profile will allow the FOCBS to respond quickly and flexibly to changing situations and make a major contribution to the security of Switzerland.

NB: Although temporary redirects are in place, please update the favourites in your browser as soon as possible.
