The Swedish Parliament approves new law on screening of foreign direct investments 

This week, the Swedish Parliament has approved the government's bill that grants a screening authority the ability to review and prohibit foreign direct investments in Swedish companies engaged in sensitive operations that are of importance to national security interests. The new framework also encompasses Swedish investments.

The new act, which enters into force on 1 December 2023, introduces an additional layer of regulatory compliance affecting the transaction process and every transaction will necessitate an evaluation to determine its alignment with the regulatory framework.
