The status “still open” means that Switzerland has not yet notified the respective country and that the AEoI has not yet been introduced with the respective country. For these countries the due diligence requirements are therefore not applicable for 2020. Should a country meet the requirements in 2020, the due diligence would only have to be applied from the coming year.
Turkey remains on the list until further notice. The decision was only postponed. If the Council of States decides not to discuss the case too, Turkey will be dropped from the list. When Turkey will be put on the agenda again is still open.
