Application for demolition of asbestos or materials containing asbestos
You must have a permit from the Swedish Work Environment Authority if you intend to demolish structures containing asbestos.
Applications must be submitted no later than five weeks prior to commencement of the demolition. You must also re-apply in the event of any company reorganisation or if your company is assigned a new organisation number.
Permits are not transferable. This means that you cannot use a permit that we have issued to another company for the same workplace.

Supplement the application if required
We will contact the contact person and request supplementary information if the application does not contain all the requisite information. You will then have two weeks to supplement the application, but you can ask for more time. Applications will normally be rejected if we do not receive the supplementary information we require. We will contact you by email in the first instance.
You will receive a reply when we have processed your application if it concerns an extension
We will check the information and reach a decision if the application concerns the extension of a permit. We will inform your contact person of the decision, normally by email. The handling and safety instructions will also be sent with the decision once these have been checked. Any extended permit will have a new reference number.
An inspection will be performed if you are applying for a permit for the first time
An inspector will check that you have the requisite knowledge to carry out asbestos demolition. We will issue a decision granting you a demolition permit provided everything is in order. We will notify your contact person of our decision by email wherever possible. The handling and safety instructions will also be sent together with the decision once these have been checked.
Knowledge deficiencies or omissions in the application identified by the inspector may result in you not being granted a permit for asbestos demolition. We will send you a decision letter, normally by email.
You can appeal
- You can appeal if your permit application is rejected
You are entitled to appeal our decision. The decision letter will state what you must do. Send your appeal to the Swedish Work Environment Authority. Explain why you think we should change our decision.
- We will then decide whether to reconsider your application
We will first decide whether to re-assess your application. If we decide to amend our initial decision, you will be notified, normally by email.
- Your appeal will be referred to the courts if we do not reconsider your application
We will forward your appeal to the appropriate court, i.e. the administrative court in the region where the decision on your application was made.
Contact the administrative court if you would like to follow the progress of your application.
