Tip-offs to the Swedish Competition Authority

You can tip us off about competition and procurement problems. For example, you can do this if you have knowledge of a serious breach of legislation such as a cartel or an unauthorised direct procurement. But you can also notify us about general problems. Your tip-offs are an important complement to our supervisory efforts and help us ensure that the rules are followed.

How to make a tip-off

Email

You can make a tip off by sending an email to tipsa@kkv.se. If you want to remain anonymous, it is important that your name is not listed in the email or anywhere else in the tip-off. If you wish to remain anonymous, we recommend creating a fictitious email address.

Telephone

Call us at +46 (0)8-700 16 00 and state whether you wish to submit a procurement tip-off or a competition tip-off.

Anonymous whistleblowing service

Please use our whistleblowing service to submit an anonymous tip-off. The whistleblowing system is encrypted and password-protected. All tip-offs are handled confidentially by a small group of employees at the Swedish Competition Authority. Please note that the documents that we receive become public documents. The whistleblowing system is only available in Swedish.

Make an anonymous tip-off (in Swedish). 

Letter

Send a letter to the Swedish Competition Authority, 103 85 Stockholm. If you wish to remain anonymous, it is important that your name is not listed in the letter or anywhere else in the tip-off. Please note that the documents that we receive become public documents. Read more about the principle of public access to official documents on the Swedish Government's website.

Competition tip-offs – information from undertakings

When undertakings submit a complaint about anticompetitive cooperation, abuse of a dominant position or anticompetitive public sales, we need the following information about your complaint/tip-off:

When you make a tip-off

Preliminary study

When we receive a tip-off, we initiate a preliminary study. The purpose of the preliminary study is to compile a dossier that allows us to make a prioritisation decision about whether to pursue the issue. We collect enough data to be able to make a prioritisation decision in accordance with our prioritisation policy.

How we prioritise our procurement supervision

Decision on whether to proceed with the case

Once we have sufficient documentation, we make a prioritisation decision about whether to pursue the issue. If we choose to pursue the case further, this may lead us to oblige the undertakings involved in the matter to cease their objectionable conduct. We may also decide that an undertaking must pay an administrative fee to the Swedish state for undermining competition.

Important information even if the case is not a priority

Even if we choose not to prioritise your tip-off, it may still be an important piece of the puzzle for us when planning our supervision, or in future interventions. However, in the case of a cartel-related tip-off, we cannot always provide feedback on how the tip-off is handled. This is because such feedback could harm our investigative work.
