Metal detector permit

Do you want to use a metal detector? Then you need to apply for a permit from the County Administrative Board.

Those who want to use a metal detector must have a permit from the County Administrative Board. We only issue permits for a limited land area, and never for areas in or at a heritage site or ancient find.

Bans under the Cultural Heritage Act

To protect our heritage sites or ancient finds, it is prohibited under the Cultural Heritage Act to use a metal detector without an approved permit from the County Administrative Board.

Application fee

The County Administrative Board charges a fee for metal detector permit applications. The fee is 700 SEK for each land area that your application applies to, whether or not the permit is approved.
