Guidance for private companies and public entities in competition with each other – what are the rules?

Do you run a business and believe that you are subject to unfair competition from a public entity? Or maybe you work for a public company and are unsure about whether or not the sales operation you conduct is actually permissible?

Turn to our guidance on anti-competitive sales activities by public entities to find out which rules apply.

When accessing the guidance you remain completely anonymous throughout and no personal information is stored.

The guidance cannot replace legal advice

Assessments made in accordance with competition law are complex and must be based on the specific circumstances applicable to each individual case. For this reason, the guidance we provide cannot replace legal advice. If you are unsure whether a public entity is conducting sales activities or conduct that might be subject to the rules, you should investigate the legislative history (prop. 2008/09:231) or seek legal advice.

The Swedish Competition Authority does not provide guidance or preliminary rulings for issues connected with specific cases.
