The Ministry of the Environment and Energy for Sweden has adopted Electrical Safety Regulation (2017:218). The Regulation repeals: Installers Regulation (1990:806), Regulation on Electrical Equipment (1993:1068) and Power Regulation (2009:22). The Regulation was created to support the Electrical Safety Act and entered into force on July 1, 2017.
The Regulation specifies stringent demands as to how facilities work with electrical safety. Specifically, the Regulation sets out restrictions for entities that develop and operate electrical installations, establishes safety requirements for the use of electrical equipment, and obligates public notice, reporting and recordkeeping. The Regulation also establishes other procedural requirements for authorization of electricians and development of power cables in areas of traffic, among many other things. Electrical equipment that does not meet the applicable requirements will be reported by the Electrical Safety Authority to the European Commission and other Member States of the European Union.
