The Armament Policy also forms the basis for offset transactions related to armament procurements from foreign countries. The concrete elaboration of the offset policy is carried out by armasuisse. The aim of offset transactions is to enhance the competitiveness of Swiss industry, in particular companies in the security-relevant technology and industry base (STIB) sector. They can provide access to cutting-edge technology, enable acquisition of expertise, generate additional export volume, and strengthen the position of Swiss industry in the international markets. To foster transparency, a register of offset transactions (the Offset Register) is published.


Offset Office

The Offset Office in Bern commenced operations on 1 January 2010. The objective of the office is to optimise collaboration and coordination between armasuisse and industry in the implementation of offset obligations. The office supports and advises Swiss industry during the entire offset process.
