The NRLA is an important part of Swiss history. Important milestones were the referenda of 1992 and 1998 in which the population backed the NRLA and its associated financing.

On the recommendation of the parliamentary NRLA supervisory delegation, the Confederation set up a NRLA internet portal in 2016. This contains original records, pictures, films, recordings and much more information on the history and social significance of the NRLA. This acknowledges the importance of NRLA for our country.

The NRLA website is operated by the Swiss Federal Archives and is available in five languages (German, French, Italian, Romansh and English).
