While there are class actions as collective redress mechanisms in the USA as well as in various EU Member States, Switzerland has deliberately refrained from implementing a US-type class action during the creation of the Swiss Code of Civil Procedure (CCP). In recent years, however, this negative attitude towards collective redress has undergone a change. For this reason, the Federal Council analyzed in 2013 the existing collective redress mechanisms in Switzerland and published a report, in which it identified legal protection deficits. Based upon this report the Federal Council issued on 2 March 2018 a preliminary draft for a selective amendment of the CCP. This article shows that the adaptation of Swiss Civil Procedural Law to strengthen collective redress would be desirable and presents therefore possible alternatives.
