History of the Swedish land register
The establishment of the electronic register started in 1970. Full information storage was completed in 1995. The Real Property Register’s technical environment and the means of access to it have been gradually developed. There are plans to introduce a brand new technological platform for the land register. Work in this direction has begun and will continue over the coming years.
