The swiss UID is composed of 9 numbers, randomly generated and contains no information about the enterprise (anonymous identifier). The Swiss origin of the number is indicated by the "CHE" prefix, which is the three-letter country code of the ISO 3166-1 standard. The last number refers to the check digit (C) determined by the Modulo 11 standard calculation method.
