Electronic Attendance Recorder in the construction industry
The Swedish Parliament, December 4 2014, decided to instate the electronic attendance recorder in the construction industry as of January 1, 2016. The construction industry´s common network "The construction industry in collaboration", where ID06 AB is included, have long pushed this issue and welcomes the decision.
The new law of the electronic attendance recorder further means in particular that...
- the building owner is responsible for keeping the equipment so that the electronic attendance recorder can be supplied at the construction site and to keep it available. The building owner can however, by a written agreement, transfer this responsibility to a person who´s pursuing a construction operation.
- the building owner should notify construction start to the Tax Agency and be assigned an identification number, which then serves as verification/identification throughout the process. As well as during the construction period report to the Tax Agency if any registered data changes. The building owner can however, by a written agreement, transfer this responsibility to a person who´s pursuing a construction operation.
- all companies and people staying at the construction site shall be entered in the attendance list that should be kept available on the the construction site for the Tax Agency's control.
- pre-registrations, attendance lists and reports shall be conducted electronically.
The Tax Agency may perform unannounced inspections at the construction site
a system of sanctions enter into force for deviations occurred from the notification requirements and/or attendance lists. The system includes limits to control the charge and when such can be applied and/or excluded. Sanctions may be addressed to both the building owner as to the companies operating at the construction site.
