It's up to the UK and Switzerland to ensure that any deal they do together also reflects any other agreements that they have in place with other parties. EU law shouldn't apply directly to an UK/ Swiss agreement unless something's been slipped in.
At the moment the UK’s deal with the Swiss is word for word the Swiss deal with the EU, so there will be work to do in due course, in the meantime we can just carry on as before.
