Risk-based supervision

Risk-based market supervision means that the Swedish Transport Agency will prioritize resources for measures taken against unsatisfactory conditions that are deemed to greatly affect the operation of the market.

An illustration of this is for example how the Swedish Transport Agency’s procedure for the allocation of capacity has a higher priority than the same procedure put in place by the municipality. Another example is that the access to capacity and services in harbours, terminals or maintenance facilities central to the railway system, is of greater interest than individual occurrences at more peripheral and marginal facilities. A third example it is more important to inspect how funds are transferred and reported between different activities ( separate accounting) by actors who have received public funding that could be used for cross-subsidisation, than it is to inspect actors that cannot gain any competitive advantages in this way.
