The Swiss fee will now be split into Base/Enhanced, where the Base Fee of 45 bps is incurred when the international transaction is conducted in CHF and the Enhanced fee, of an additional 55 bps, is incurred on transactions not conducted in CHF. This will apply on transactions between Switzerland and EEA countries as well as other international transactions.
