Informations pratiques:

Autorités expéditrices
(art. 3(1)):
Courts, enforcement agencies and other authorities that serve documents in civil and commercial matters.
Formes de signification ou de notification
(art. 5(1)(2)):

Service with an acknowledgement of receipt: 

Service is effected by sending the document by registered mail to the addressee. 

The letter is accompanied by an acknowledgment of receipt, which the addressee is required to sign upon receiving the letter from the postal office.

Service by electronic means may be used by authorities only, should this way of service not be deemed inappropriate with respect to the content of the document to be served or other circumstances. 

Service by a process server:

Personal service is effected by a process server or other appointed officials e.g. a police officer or bailiff.

Substituted service may be carried out in certain circumstances. The document is then handed to someone other than the addressee, for example an adult member of the addressee's household or his/her employer.

If there is reason to believe that a person is acting to avoid being served and no other person can be served (substituted service), the document may under certain circumstances be left at the addressee's home.

Exigences de traduction
(art. 5(3)):
Any document to be served under Article 5(1) must be written in or translated into Swedish.
Frais d’exécution d’une demande de signification ou de notification
(art. 12):

There are no costs for the service of documents in Sweden.  But if a particular method requested by the applicant creates costs for the Swedish Central Authority, Article 12(2)(b) gives the legal basis to require the applicant to reimburse these costs. This Article, however, is very rarely applied.

If a payment or reimbursement is required, the amount of the fee corresponds to the cost incurred. The fees are the same for all applicants and do not depend on the requesting State. Also, the fees are not proportional to the value of the litigation.
