When the Federal Council prepares or reviews major legislation, the Cantons, political parties and umbrella organizations are consulted on the appropriateness of the project. The CCIG replies to numerous consultations and in particular to those that affect one of the framework conditions. It is also regularly consulted by economiesuisse. The Chamber may also be consulted by the Cantonal government on projects within its sphere of competence.
In these cases, the CCIG requests comments from the membership and these are integrated into the position taken by the Chamber.
