Vehicle Testing Monopoly Abolished

The Swedish parliament has abolished the monopoly of the national Motor Vehicle Inspection Company, Bilprovningen, on Thursday. Starting next summer, the annual safety checks of the nation's cars may be performed by private operators.

One likely competitor has already staked his claim - The Finnish A-Katsastus Company. It has been established in several other European countries for years.
