The new rules provided opportunities to introduce more stringent emissions requirements in particular exposed areas, since 2006 Sweden lies in a so-called Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA). Emission restrictions in SECA areas will be tightened in 2015. The purpose of this report is to create insight into how Sweden enforces their SECA area and how compliance checks are done; different control methods that are use in enforcement will also be addressed.
