How to request a lawfulness check

The Swedish Data Protection Authority supervises law enforcement authorities

You can also request a so-called lawfulness check. You must then first have been told that you cannot be given information by, for example, the police. Then you can request that the Swedish Data Protection Authority conduct a check. You must state what it is that you wish us to check, for example a certain register. During the check the Swedish Data Protection Authority looks at whether the law enforcement authority processes your personal data in accordance with the law. When it has been completed, we tell you that the check has been performed but for reasons of secrecy you are not normally told if the authority holds information relating to you in its registers.
