The Complexities of Importing into Sweden

While Sweden may be synonymous with streamlined and advanced infrastructure or as a “socialist utopia,” it is not often associated with a flourishing, privately-owned Tech industry. Yet thanks to its innovative economics and robust research and development initiatives, Sweden has solidified its position as a Tech hub. As a member of the European Union (EU), trade from within Europe is relatively mobile. While certain goods are deregulated from within the region, customs, duties, registrations, evaluations, and authorizations are imposed by customs that can be complex to navigate. Batteries and electrical equipment, for example, are particularly strictly managed under these parameters. From outside of the EU customs, compliance and product safety documentation is relatively complex, especially relating to dual-use goods and medical equipment.
