Art. 46

II. Oth­er in­ter­im or­ders

 

1An ap­peal is per­mit­ted against oth­er sep­ar­ately no­ti­fied in­ter­im or­ders:

a.
if they may cause a non-re­dress­able pre­ju­dice; or
b.
if grant­ing the ap­peal would im­me­di­ately bring about a fi­nal de­cision and thus would ob­vi­ate sig­ni­fic­ant ex­pendit­ure in time or money in pro­longed evid­en­tiary pro­ceed­ings.

2If an ap­peal un­der para­graph 1 is not per­mit­ted or if such right of ap­peal has not been ex­er­cised, the in­ter­im or­ders con­cerned shall be con­test­able by ap­peal against the fi­nal rul­ing, provided they have an ef­fect on the con­tent of the fi­nal rul­ing.

Art. 52

II. Con­tent and form

 

1The ap­peal pe­ti­tion must con­tain the ap­plic­a­tion, the grounds of ap­peal with de­tails of the evid­ence and the sig­na­ture of the ap­pel­lant or his agent; the of­fi­cial copy of the con­tested rul­ing and doc­u­ments cited as evid­ence must be at­tached, provided they are in the ap­pel­lant's pos­ses­sion.

2If the ap­peal fails to sat­is­fy these re­quire­ments, or if the ap­plic­a­tion made by the ap­pel­lant or the grounds there­for lack the re­quired clar­ity but the ap­peal is not clearly in­ad­miss­ible, the ap­pel­late au­thor­ity shall grant the ap­pel­lant a short ad­di­tion­al peri­od to re­vise the ap­peal pe­ti­tion.

3It shall at the same time no­ti­fy the ap­pel­lant that if there is not re­sponse with­in the ad­di­tion­al peri­od, it shall de­cide on the basis of the case files or in the ab­sence of an ap­plic­a­tion, grounds or a sig­na­ture, to de­clare the ap­peal in­ad­miss­ible.

Art. 53

III. Sup­ple­ment­ary ap­peal pe­ti­tion

 

If the un­usu­al com­plex­ity or spe­cial dif­fi­culty of an ap­peal case so re­quires, the ap­pel­late au­thor­ity shall grant an ap­pel­lant who so re­quests in his oth­er­wise prop­erly filed ap­peal a suit­able ad­di­tion­al peri­od with­in which to sup­ple­ment his grounds of ap­peal; in such cases, Art­icle 32 para­graph 2 does not ap­ply.

Art. 54

H. Oth­er pro­ced­ur­al rules pri­or to the ap­peal de­cision

I. Prin­ciple

Art. 55

II. Pre­cau­tion­ary meas­ures

1. Sus­pens­ive ef­fect

 

1An ap­peal shall have a sus­pens­ive ef­fect.

2If the rul­ing does not re­late to the pay­ment of money, the lower in­stance may re­voke the sus­pens­ive ef­fect of any ap­peal in its rul­ing; once the ap­peal has been filed, the ap­pel­late au­thor­ity, its pres­id­ent or the in­struct­ing judge has the same power.1

3The ap­pel­late au­thor­ity, its pres­id­ent or the in­struct­ing judge may re­in­state the sus­pens­ive ef­fect re­voked by the lower in­stance; an ap­plic­a­tion for the re­in­state­ment of the sus­pens­ive ef­fect must be de­cided im­me­di­ately.2

4If the sus­pens­ive ef­fect is re­voked ar­bit­rar­ily or an ap­plic­a­tion for the re­in­state­ment of the sus­pens­ive ef­fect is ar­bit­rar­ily not gran­ted or gran­ted late, the pub­lic cor­por­a­tion or autonom­ous in­sti­tu­tion on whose be­half the au­thor­ity has is­sued the rul­ing shall be li­able for any loss or dam­age in­curred thereby.

5The pro­vi­sions of oth­er fed­er­al acts un­der which an ap­peal does not have a sus­pens­ive ef­fect are re­served.3

2. Oth­er meas­ures

 

Once the ap­peal has been filed, the ap­pel­late au­thor­ity, its pres­id­ent or the in­struct­ing judge may take oth­er pre­cau­tion­ary meas­ures ex of­fi­cio or in re­sponse to an ap­plic­a­tion by a party, in rul­ing to pre­serve the cur­rent situ­ation or to tem­por­ar­ily safe­guard in­terests that are at risk.

1The ap­pel­late au­thor­ity shall im­me­di­ately no­ti­fy the lower in­stance and any re­spond­ents or oth­er parties in­volved of any ap­peal that is not fun­da­ment­ally in­ad­miss­ible or ground­less, al­low them a peri­od with­in which to re­spond and at the same time re­quest the lower in­stance to pro­duce its case files.1

2It may in­vite the parties to ex­change writ­ten sub­mis­sions at any stage of the pro­ceed­ings or ar­range an or­al de­bate with them.

IV. New rul­ing

 

1The lower in­stance may re­con­sider its con­tested rul­ing at any time pri­or to mak­ing a form­al re­sponse to the ap­peal.

2It shall no­ti­fy the parties im­me­di­ately of any new rul­ing and in­form the ap­pel­late au­thor­ity of the same.

3The ap­pel­late au­thor­ity shall pro­ceed with the ap­peal un­less it is rendered ground­less by the new rul­ing of the lower in­stance; Art­icle 57 ap­plies if the new rul­ing is based on facts that are sub­stan­tially dif­fer­ent or cre­ates a leg­al po­s­i­tion that is sub­stan­tially dif­fer­ent.

Art. 59

V. Re­cus­al

 

The ap­pel­late au­thor­ity may not ap­point per­sons to hear the ap­peal who serve the lower in­stance or who par­ti­cip­ated in the draft­ing of the con­tested rul­ing; if the con­tested rul­ing is based on an in­struc­tion from the ap­pel­late au­thor­ity, Art­icle 47 para­graphs 2-4 also ap­ply.

Art. 60

VI. Pro­ced­ur­al pen­al­ties

 

1The ap­pel­late au­thor­ity may is­sue a rep­rim­and to or im­pose a dis­cip­lin­ary fine of up to 500 francs on parties or their rep­res­ent­at­ives who of­fend against the pro­pri­ety or dis­rupt the con­duct of the pro­ceed­ings.

2In cases of vex­a­tious or ir­re­spons­ible lit­ig­a­tion, the party and his rep­res­ent­at­ive may be is­sued with dis­cip­lin­ary fine of up to 1000 francs or of up to 3000 francs in the event of re­offend­ing.

3The per­son presid­ing over a hear­ing may have per­sons who re­fuse to com­ply with his in­struc­tions re­moved from the room and may im­pose a dis­cip­lin­ary fine of up to 500 francs.

Art. 61

J. Ap­peal de­cision

I. Con­tent and form

 

1The ap­pel­late au­thor­ity shall it­self make the de­cision in the case or in ex­cep­tion­al cases shall refer the case back to the lower in­stance and is­sue bind­ing in­struc­tions.

2The ap­peal de­cision shall con­tain a sum­mary of the rel­ev­ant facts of the case, a state­ment of the grounds for the de­cision and the op­er­at­ive part of the de­cision.

3No­ti­fic­a­tion of the de­cision must be giv­en to the parties and the lower in­stance.

Art. 62

II. Amend­ment of the con­tested rul­ing

 

1The ap­pel­late au­thor­ity may amend the con­tested rul­ing in fa­vour of a party.

2It may amend the con­tested rul­ing to the pre­ju­dice of a party, provided the rul­ing vi­ol­ates fed­er­al law or is based on an in­cor­rect or in­com­plete de­term­in­a­tion of the facts of the case; the con­tested rul­ing may not be amended to the pre­ju­dice of a party on the grounds that it is in­ad­equate, oth­er than in the case of an amend­ment in fa­vour of a re­spond­ent.

3If the ap­pel­late au­thor­ity in­tends to amend the con­tested rul­ing to the pre­ju­dice of a party, it shall no­ti­fy the party of this in­ten­tion and al­low him the op­por­tun­ity to re­spond.

4In no event do the grounds for the ap­plic­a­tion bind the ap­pel­late au­thor­ity.

Art. 63

III. Pro­ced­ur­al costs

 

1In its judg­ment, the ap­pel­late au­thor­ity shall nor­mally im­pose the pro­ced­ur­al costs, con­sist­ing of the au­thor­ity's own fees, the re­gis­trar's fees and cash out­lays on the un­suc­cess­ful party. If the party is only partly un­suc­cess­ful, the pro­ced­ur­al costs shall be re­duced. In ex­cep­tion­al cases, they may be re­mit­ted.

2No pro­ced­ur­al costs shall be im­posed on lower in­stances or ap­pel­lant fed­er­al au­thor­it­ies that are un­suc­cess­ful; per­sons oth­er than fed­er­al au­thor­it­ies that file an ap­peal and are un­suc­cess­ful shall be re­quired to pay pro­ced­ur­al costs provided the dis­pute relates to the pe­cu­ni­ary in­terests of pub­lic cor­por­a­tions or autonom­ous in­sti­tu­tions.

3Pro­ced­ur­al costs may only be im­posed on a suc­cess­ful party if the costs were in­curred through a vi­ol­a­tion of pro­ced­ur­al du­ties.

4The ap­pel­late au­thor­ity, its pres­id­ent or the in­struct­ing judge shall ob­tain from the ap­pel­lant an ad­vance pay­ment to cov­er costs equi­val­ent to the ex­pec­ted level of the costs. The ap­pel­lant must be al­lowed a suit­able peri­od with­in which to make pay­ment, sub­ject to the case be­ing dis­missed without en­ter­ing in­to its sub­stance in the event of non-pay­ment. If there are spe­cial reas­ons, the ad­vance pay­ment to cov­er costs may be waived in full or in part.1

4bisThe au­thor­ity's own fees are gov­erned by the ex­tent and dif­fi­culty of the mat­ter in dis­pute, the form of the pro­ceed­ings and the fin­an­cial cir­cum­stances of the parties. They shall amount to:

a.

b.
100-50 000 francs in oth­er dis­putes.2

5The Fed­er­al Coun­cil shall reg­u­late the de­tails of the cal­cu­la­tion of the fees.3 Art­icle 16 para­graph 1 let­ter a of the Fed­er­al Ad­min­is­trat­ive Court Act of 17 June 20054 and Art­icle 73 of the Law En­force­ment Au­thor­it­ies Act of 19 March 20105 are re­served.6

IV. Re­im­burse­ment of rep­res­ent­a­tion costs

 

1The ap­pel­late au­thor­ity may award the suc­cess­ful party ex of­fi­cio or on ap­plic­a­tion a pay­ment in re­spect of all or part of the costs that he has in­curred that were reas­on­able and ne­ces­sary.

K. Re­view

I. Grounds

 

1The ap­pel­late au­thor­ity shall re­view their de­cision ex of­fi­cio or on the ap­plic­a­tion of a party if the de­cision has been in­flu­enced by a felony or mis­de­mean­our.

2It shall also re­view its de­cision on the ap­plic­a­tion of a party if:

a.
the party in­tro­duces rel­ev­ant new facts or evid­ence;
b.
the party demon­strates that the ap­pel­late au­thor­ity over­looked rel­ev­ant facts that were on re­cord or spe­cif­ic ap­plic­a­tions;
c.
the party demon­strates that the ap­pel­late au­thor­ity vi­ol­ated the pro­vi­sions of Art­icles 10, 59 or 76 on re­cus­al, Art­icles 26-28 on the in­spec­tion of files or the Art­icles 29-33 on the right to be heard; or
d.
the European Court of Hu­man Rights has held in a fi­nal judg­ment that there has been a vi­ol­a­tion of the European Con­ven­tion on Hu­man Rights of 4 Novem­ber 19502 or of the Pro­to­cols3 thereto, provided an award of dam­ages is not suf­fi­cient to rem­edy the con­sequences of the vi­ol­a­tion and the re­view is ne­ces­sary in rul­ing to re­dress the vi­ol­a­tion.

3The grounds re­ferred to in para­graph 2 let­ters a-c are not re­garded as grounds for a re­view if the party had the op­por­tun­ity to in­voke them in the course of pro­ceed­ings pri­or to the ap­peal de­cision, or by means of an ap­peal that he was en­titled to bring against the ap­peal de­cision.

3The con­tent, form, cor­rec­tion and amend­ment of the ap­plic­a­tion for a re­view are gov­erned by Art­icles 52 and 53; the state­ment of grounds must in par­tic­u­lar in­dic­ate the grounds for the re­view and con­firm­a­tion that the ap­plic­a­tion for a re­view has been filed in time. This must also con­tain the ap­plic­a­tion in the event that a new ap­peal de­cision is made.
