Authorised Electrician

The Swedish National Electrical Safety Board is responsible for reviewing applications for authorisation as Authorised electrician in Sweden. Each year, between 1500 and 1700 authorisation applications are processed. The principle rule governing electrical installations in Sweden is that Swedish authorisation as Authorised electrician is required if the work is classified as requiring authorisation. 

Authorisation as Authorised electrician is granted on an individual basis in Sweden. If you plan to accept employment as an electrician in Sweden, it is not necessary to submit an application or petition to the Swedish National Electrical Safety Board. In such cases, it is the potential employer who will determine if you are employable as an electrician. You will then work under the supervision of an Authorised electrician.

Applicants with Swedish qualifications are required to have a certain education and practical experience. The requirements differ depending on the type of authorisation you are applying for. If you apply with Swedish qualifications, you should attach certified copies of relevant education and verification of practical experience to your application.

Generally speaking, applicants with qualifications from an EEA country other than Sweden who have a licence, authorisation or corresponding certification from their home country, will usually be granted the corresponding authorisation in Sweden upon application to the Swedish National Electrical Safety Board (in accordance with directive 2005/36/EC, amended by directive 2013/55/EU). Supporting documentation verifying that you have a licence/authorisation in your home country must be enclosed.

Before an application can be processed you must pay an application fee to the Swedish National Electrical Safety Board. The application fee is 1 350 SEK and should be paid to the Swedish National Electrical Safety Board's bank account 503-0333.

Note : You should enter the name and social security number as a reference /message on the payment details.

For payments outside Sweden, the payment details are: IBAN SE2012000000012810104492 SWIFT / BIC DABASESX.

Note : You should enter the name and social security number as a reference /message on the payment details.

The application will not be processed until the application has been submitted and the application fee paid. Applications for authorisation are processed in the order they are received.

If the Swedish National Electrical Safety Board has not received the application fee within seven days after receiving your application, a reminder will be sent to you. If the application fee is still not paid within the specified time, the Swedish National Electrical Safety Board will reject your application.
