The Swedish Act (2021:890) on the protection of persons reporting irregularities (commonly known as the Whistleblower Act) allows you to report suspected wrongdoing without risking legal liability or reprisals.
To ensure impartial and professional case handling, many Swedish organisations have chosen to use Svensk Bakgrundsanalys AB to receive and investigate reports of wrongdoing. If you are reading this text, you have probably found us via one of our clients.
How can you report your suspicions?
See below for how to report wrongdoing and to read more about how the regulation works.
You also have the right to make your report orally (for example by telephone) or in a face-to-face meeting. Contact us on +46 (0)10 491 1227 if you wish to discuss such alternatives.
Finally, it is also possible to submit a report externally to the relevant authorities. You can find links to these authorities and information on which types of wrongdoing can be reported on the Swedish Work Environment Authority’s website.
What happens after you make your report?
Svensk Bakgrundsanalys confirms receipt of your report within seven days. We then follow up to inform you, so far as is reasonable, of any action taken in response to the report and the reasons for such action. You will receive our follow-up within three months of confirmation of receipt, at the latest.
