Working with electrical installations

Electricity is dangerous. That is why Sweden has strict regulations about who is allowed to carry out electrical installation work and how. The electrical installation companies are responsible for ensuring that electrical installation work is carried out in accordance with the relevant rules. The companies' self-audit schemes are intended to guarantee compliance. You are not allowed to work with electrical installations unless you are included in a self-audit scheme.
