The Swiss Commission for Astronomy (SCFA) of the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) is the board representing the Swiss professional astronomers. It is made essentially of the directors of the various Swiss astronomical institutes.

The SCFA represents the main link between professional astronomers and the State Secretariat for Education and Research in order to facilitate political decisions related to the long-term scientific policy of Switzerland in relation to astronomy.
In international scientific organisations such as the European Southern Observatory and the International Astronomical Union, the SCFA is the official representative of the Swiss astronomy community.
