Bribes, conflicts of interest and corruption

The Swedish Transport Administration works actively to combat all forms of bribes and corruption.

During contacts between customers and suppliers, offers of extra benefits are sometimes made to promote relationships. This includes everything from meals and gifts to event visits and trips.

In Sweden, all of these can, under certain circumstances, be classed as bribes according to the Swedish Criminal Code.

Anyone who receives or requests a bribe can be prosecuted for accepting bribes, while someone that gives or offers a bribe can be prosecuted for corruption. The regulations on bribes and corruption in the Criminal Code include all employees, irrespective of their job.

You can read more about the regulations and policy for bribes and corruption at the Anti-Corruption Institute website.
