Federal register of buildings and housing

The federal register of buildings and housing contains the most important basic data about buildings and housing. It is used for statistical, research and planning purposes and allows the cantons and municipalities to fulfil their statutory tasks. The register is updated in coordination with the construction and housing statistics. Every building and every dwelling has a clear and unique identification number (federal building ID (EGID) or federal dwelling ID (EWID)) and a geocoded address, standardised according to the SNV 612040 standard. Plot numbers, building numbers and metric building coordinates allow the exact geographic location of the buildings to be identified.
