Sweden/ 5.1 General legislation  

5.1.8 Data protection laws

Sweden has implemented the EU Data Protection Directive of 1995 (95/46) as the Personal Data Protection Law (Personuppgiftslagen, Swedish Code of Statutes 1998:4). This law relates directly to a general principle of the Swedish Fundamental Laws; that all information held by public authorities that is not explicitly made secret is automatically made public. Thus, all government archives are accessible to the public, exceptmaterial that has been made secret, including material that is deemed personal.
