In October 2008, the Swedish Schools Inspectorate was established as a governmental body. The organization had a flying start in the sense that it took over inspection activities that were already going on within the National Agency for Education, and that had expanded greatly during the last couple of years.

During the years that the Swedish Schools Inspectorate has been in operation, new approaches to school inspection have been developed, and methods and procedures are still under development.
