Article 10 - Information on competent courts or authorities
Competent authorities according to article 6.3: the district courts (tingsrätterna). Which district court is competent depends upon where the mediation agreement is concluded. If there is no competent court according to this rule, for example when the agreement is concluded outside Sweden, the district court of Värmland is competent. An application for a declaration of enforceability shall be made to the District court which has jurisdiction over the area where one of the parties has its habitual residence.
If none of the parties has its habitual residence in Sweden, the District Court of Värmland shall be the competent jurisdiction.
