Foreign Direct Investments (FDI)

The control system for foreign direct investments is usually referred to as FDI, which stands for Foreign Direct Investments. The aim of the rules is to prevent foreign direct investment in Swedish protection-worthy activities that could have a harmful effect on Sweden’s security, public order, or public security. Such investments must be notified to the Inspectorate of Strategic Products (ISP) for review before they can be implemented. The notification obligation is extensive and affects many types of investments and activities. Swedish investors are also subject to the notification obligation. A breach of the notification obligation, or the implementation of an investment before the ISP has left it without action or approved it, can lead to heavy fines.
