Whitsun 2020: Planned interruption to Swissmedic eGov services due to extensive maintenance work at FOITT Data Center

Network changeover by the Federal Office of Information Technology, Systems and Telecommunication (FOITT)


Over the Whit weekend (30 May to 1 June 2020) the FOITT will be carrying out major maintenance work on its IT systems. All Swissmedic eGov applications will be unavailable from 3 p.m. on Saturday 30.5.2020 until 6 a.m. on Tuesday 2.6.2020.

The FOITT is having to renew its network infrastructure and migrate the firewalls. This maintenance work on the network infrastructure will result in lengthy system interruptions between 3 p.m. on Saturday 30 May and 6 a.m. on Tuesday 2 June 2020.

To avoid data losses, access to Swissmedic eGov services via the CH-LOGIN (E-Government Identity and Access Management eIAM service) will be blocked during this period. All Swissmedic eGov services (MLP, Elvis, VOU, MESA-DB) will be affected by the interruption.
