Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency

The MSB (Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency) is responsible for issues concerning civil protection, public safety, emergency management and civil defence as long as no other authority has responsibility. Responsibility refers to measures taken before, during and after an emergency or crisis.

We work

  • via knowledge enhancement, support, training, exercises, regulation, supervision and our own operations
  • in close cooperation with the municipalities, county councils, other authorities, the private sector and various organisations
  • to achieve greater security and safety at all levels of society, from local to global

The Swedish Government steers the MSB via a body of instructions and an annual appropriation. The instructions specify the MSB's responsibilities and tasks. The appropriation specifies the objectives and reporting requirements, as well as the resources allocated for MSB administration and MSB activities.
