The deadline for the Swedish Health and Social Care Inspectorate’s ("IVO") appeal of the Administrative Court in Stockholm's suspension decision has expired. IVO has not submitted an appeal to the Supreme Administrative Court. This means that the suspension decision remains unchanged, and that Humana Assistans AB ("Humana Assistans") can continue to conduct operations while the legal process regarding IVO's decision to revoke Humana Assistans' permit continues in the Administrative Court.
