Reporting postings in the road transport sector
Employers in the road transport sector who engage drivers from other countries on assignments involving transports to Sweden must continue to report such postings in accordance with the current rules and regulations that pertain to posted workers.
This will apply until the EU Directive 2020/1057 on posting drivers in the road transport sector is implemented in Swedish legislation.
However, the Swedish Work Environment Authority does accept submitted posting declarations in accordance with the new EU Directive rules as a report in accordance with current posting rules.
On 2 February 2022, EU Directive 2020/157 on posting drivers in the road transport sector will enter into force. The Directive stipulates, among other things, that employers who post drivers within the EU/EES must submit a posting declaration in the EU Commission’s portal for posting declarations. At checkpoints, the driver must also be able to present a copy of the posting declaration.
Up until the time when the Directive is implemented in Swedish legislation, the current wording of the Swedish Posting of Workers Act and Posting of Workers Ordinance will apply, which means that any postings of workers to Sweden must be reported to the Swedish Work Environment Authority.
However, prior to the Directive being implemented in Swedish legislation, and to make things easier for you, we will accept the posting declaration that you submitted to the EU Commission’s Portal. That way, you don’t need to keep track of whether you should report the posting to the Swedish Work Environment Authority or submit a declaration to the EU Commission’s portal.

Please note that the Swedish rules on posting of workers will be revised such that, in the future, they could possibly contain new rules compared to what is stipulated in the Directive. When that happens, we will publish the updated information for you on this page.
Posting from Sweden to other EU/EES countries
Just like before, you must check the specific rules that apply in the country where you intend to post a worker. This is particularly important during the transition period between when the current and new rules apply. If you need to submit a posting declaration in the EU Commission’s portal for posting declarations in the road transport sector, you can do so here, below.
