I think it depends on the units. Does this mean a blood alcohol content of 0.1% (ie 0.1g per 100ml)? From a quick google search that would be enough to make someone slur their speech and appear drunk so I’d imagine an “effectively zero” limit is far below this.Yes, sorry, I was inaccurate. We have a legal limit of 0, wich translates in a technical 0,1‰ limit, needed for considering the above quoted reasons.
Which, if I got everything right, is below your 29mg/ml in blood limit?
You’d need to compare the UK mg/ml limits across blood, alcohol and urine with the Swiss equivalents to be sure.
I’ve not heard of anyone failing a med screen for alcohol. What has caught a few people out is the presence of “illicit” substances which can linger in the blood stream for weeks.
