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.

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 competition enforcement efforts

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.
