Personal Data Processing (step 8 of 9)

When you apply for authorisation as an authorised electrician, the Swedish National Electrical Safety Board will process your personal data. 

The National Electrical Safety Board processes your personal data for purposes of processing your application for authorisation. If you are granted authorisation, the National Electrical Safety Board may use your personal data for supervisory purposes  or to provide you with important information on, for example, regulatory changes.

How we use your personal data 
If you rely on foreign qualifications in your application, the National Electrical Safety Board may need

  • to provide your details to the Swedish Council for Higher Education for purposes of assessing the education,
  • and submit your personal data to the competent authority in the EEA country where you obtained your professional qualifications. The purpose is to investigate whether you are authorised to exercise the profession in another state within the EEA. 

If, as a result of the assessment, you are granted authorisation, your name, personal identity number (or date of birth if you do not have a personal identity number) and residential address will be registered in the register of authorised electricians which the National Electrical Safety Board has a duty to maintain under Article 26 of the Electrical Safety Ordinance (2017:218).

If you have provided a Swedish personal identity number, this will be run every month against the data you have provided to the Swedish Tax Agency's population register. If you have told us about a change of address or change of name, we will transfer this information to our register of authorised electricians. The purpose is to keep your contact details updated. We obtain this information from Bisnode Business Information Group AB, 556681-5725.

The legal grounds for the relevant processing are provided in Article 6 1.e of the Data Protection Regulation, namely that processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the National Electrical Safety Board.
