Applicable Laws

The Data Inspection Board, also known as Datainspektionen (DIB), is the authority that oversees and enforces data protection in Sweden. Sweden has always been proactive with their protection of personal information, and legislation for protecting personal data was first introduced in 1973 with the Swedish Data Act. When the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC was put in place by the European Union, this opportunity allowed Sweden to revisit their original legislation and update it.

The original Swedish Data Act was found to be outdated, so Sweden has implemented the provisions of the data protection directive through their new Personal Data Act (Swedish Personuppgiftslagen, SFS 1998/204), and their amendments. These laws protect the way that personal data is collected and handled. It states that individuals should provide consent prior to the collection of data, unless the law suggests otherwise.
