Living will - euthanasia

Anyone who is able to express his wishes, major or minor, and who has a national number, can record his living will concerning euthanasia. The declaration must also be signed by two witnesses (at the same date), with at least one person who has no material interest in case of death, and possibly by adult counselors.

You have the option to register this declaration (with the municipal administration) in the database of the Federal Public Health Service, to which doctors have access.

Living wills concerning euthanasia made from 2 April 2020 onwards automatically have an unlimited duration (instead of 5 years). If you have made such a declaration, you do not have to renew it.

Wills made before 2 April 2020 remain valid for 5 years and must be renewed.
