Informations pratiques:
(Les informations suivantes ont été fournies par les autorités étatiques concernées ou ont été obtenues à partir des réponses aux Questionnaires de 2003, de 2008 et/ou de 2013 sur la Convention Notification.)

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)):

Formal service (Art. 5(1)(a))

Ordinary service:

Service is effected by sending the document or by handing the document to the addressee.
The most common procedure is service by post. The letter is accompanied by a receipt of service, which the addressee is required to sign and return.
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.

Oral service:

The content of a document is read to the addressee. The document is hereafter sent to the addressee. This method can not be used in service of documents that initiates a proceeding.

Simplified service:

The document is sent by post to the addressee's last known address followed by a notice one day later, stating that the document has been sent. Evidence of reception or receipt is thus not required. Simplified service can only be used if the authority has informed the addressee that this way of serving may be used in the proceedings.

Special service on a legal entity:

In certain circumstances a document can be served on a legal entity by sending it to its registered office followed by a notice one day later, stating that the document has been sent.

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.

Service by proclamation:

Service by proclamation may be carried out under certain circumstances. The document is made available at the offices of the authority or the court and at the same time it is notified and a summary of the document is published on the website of the gazette Post och Inrikes tidningar and, if there is a reason for it, also in a local newspaper.

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

Délai d’exécution: Normally, police authorities carry out service in Sweden within two months. Service by post is effected within less than a month.
