Insurance distribution

Insurance intermediaries are covered by the Insurance Distribution Act (2018:1219).

Please note that the authorisation to distribute insurance must be registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office. The Swedish Companies Registration Office should have received the notification of registration within six months from the date of FI's authorisation. Otherwise, the authorisation is invalid.

Other information

In addition to the Insurance Distribution Act, rules are set out in the Insurance Distribution Ordinance (2018:1231) and Finansinspektionen's regulations and general guidelines (FFFS 2018:10) regarding insurance distribution. Refer to the Swedish page for more information.
