The main task of the FCA is to contribute to the safety and protection of the population, the economy, the Swiss state and the environment. The FCA employs around 4,500 people and is active at home, at the borders and abroad.

The DaziT programme simplifies, optimises and digitalises the processes for customs, tax and duty collection, and controls. This leads to a total transformation at all levels of the organisation: organisational structure and culture, processes, tools, infrastructure, legal foundations, education and training, etc. The goals will be achieved in stages and internet content will be continuously adapted accordingly.

Operations and Prosecution fulfil the core tasks of the FCA.
