Published Updated

Directive 2014/67/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on the enforcement of Directive 96/71/EC concerning the posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services and amending Regulation (EU) No 1024/2012 on administrative cooperation through the Internal Market Information System (‘the IMI Regulation’), abbreviated as the Enforcement Directive, was adopted on 15 May 2014.


On 27 February 2015 we presented the interim report The Enforcement Directive to the Posting of Workers Directive – Part I (SOU 2015:13) to the Minister for the Ministry of Employment, Ylva Johansson.

This final report covers the remit in the expanded supplementary terms of reference (ToR 2014:150) that the Inquiry received from the Government on 27 November 2014. This part of the Inquiry's remit has been to submit the legislative proposals needed to adapt Swedish law to the Enforcement Directive regarding:

  • better access to information about terms and conditions of collective agreements; and
  • the introduction of subcontracting liability.

According to its supplementary terms of reference the Inquiry is to evaluate the application in practice of the provisions on the task of the Swedish Work Environment Authority to provide information and the obligation of the employee organisations to submit the terms and conditions of collective agreements to the Swedish Work Environment Authority. The Inquiry is to base its deliberations and proposals on the Swedish labour market model.
