Extensive amendments to the Swedish Protective Security Act - increased obligations and a comprehensive sanctions system

Extensive amendments to the Swedish Protective Security, which include increased obligations for operators of security-sensitive activities and a comprehensive sanctions system, are proposed to enter into force on 1 December 2021. These changes, which were presented in a Government bill of 18 March 2021, generate new and far-reaching obligations for many companies, especially in view of the severe sanctions that may be imposed if the obligations are not complied with.
