ID06 – Compulsory ID and attendance reporting on the building site

With the introduction of ID06, the building sector has made a big step forward in the fight against economic crime. Pre-registration, compulsory proof of identity and attendance reporting make it more difficult for unauthorised persons to be present on the building site.

The ID06-system started in 2006. It is a system that enables businesses to do ID-controls and gather attendance records, which purpose is to make it difficult to perform undeclared work and for corruption. Anyone who is present at a construction site should be registered when they arrive and leave the site, the information should be able to be verified/checked by the Swedish tax-authorities. 

Since the 1st of January 2016 it is law that all construction sites in Sweden must have electronic attendance recorders that register entries and exits. The Swedish tax authority has a legal right to request information regarding attendance records that show who has been present on the construction site in question, as well as do unannounced visits at construction sites to verify that no undeclared labourers have been working on the site.

Registration of all persons present on the construction site is a big advantage from a safety point of view, so that one – at an occurrence of an accident – quickly can identify if someone is missing.

In brief, ID06 means that

  • subcontractors and suppliers are obliged to provide to the general contractor or turnkey contractor in advance in writing, the names and civic registration numbers of the persons who shall have the right to be present on the building site,
  • everyone on the building site is obliged to be able to show a valid ID,
  • everyone on the building site is obliged to wear a visible identity badge or authorisation card,
  • the general contractor or turnkey contractor is obliged to keep a daily list of everyone present (personnel register) on the building site. The daily list of those present shall be kept for two years, and kept available for possible inspection by the Swedish Tax Agency,
  • the general contractor or turnkey contractor has the right to refuse entry to those persons who have not been pre-registered or do not have an ID,
  • the general contractor or turnkey contractor has the right to demand a penalty of SEK 500 per person and day from the employer involved, if employees of the subcontractor or supplier cannot show an ID or do not have a visible identity badge,
  • the contractor or supplier is obliged to cite ID06 in agreements with any subcontractor.
