When a crisis hits, such as a major disruption of telephone service, the main tasks of the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) is to stay on top of the situation, collect information on what is going on, and report to the Government and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB).
A coordination group for the electronic communications sector
When serious disruptions and extraordinary events occur in Sweden, the National Telecommunications Coordination Group (NTSG) is called into action. The NTSG is a voluntary coordination group whose purpose it is to aid in restoring the national electronic communications structure when nation-wide crises occur. The Group includes private sector companies, government agencies and public service companies.
