The Public Health Agency of Sweden
Updated 3 March 2022

If the rules are not complied with

The Public Health Agency is the supervisory authority for manufacturers, importers, wholesalers, distributors and in some cases retailers, with regard to traceability and security features.

The Public Health Authority may, in its supervisory capacity, issue the injunctions or prohibitions that are necessary for compliance with the law or a regulation issued pursuant to the law. A decision on an injunction or prohibition may be accompanied by a fine.


A fine is an amount of money to be paid if you do not comply with a decision by a supervisory authority. The fine is imposed by a court. The sum can be determined in advance and can amount to several thousand kronor.
