As part of the implementation of the LPSP, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs raises awareness of the companies concerned, strengthens the exchanges between the Swiss State institutions, and is committed at the international level to promote good practices and adherence to the ICoCA.
The LPSP is also the legal basis that governs the federal government's use of a security company's services in protection of its personnel and representations in complex environments abroad and sets the minimum requirements to be satisfied by the company. These requirements relate in particular to the internal control mechanisms, the initial and continuous training of staff and the equipment of the company.
In order to facilitate and verify the implementation of the LPSP, the federal government has, among other things, adopted:
- The Guide to the Federal Law on Private Security Services Provided Abroad (April 2016);
- Annual activity reports on the implementation of the federal law on private security services provided abroad.
