 * As of 2017, the accounting policy for Södra Cell’s planned maintenance shutdowns has changed so that the cost is charged to the profit and loss statement for the current year, rather than being capitalised and subsequently amortised over the period until the next maintenance shutdown. See note 6.
** LTA (lost time accidents): occupational injuries with absence.
*** LTAR (lost time accident rate): the number of occupational injuries with absence per million hours worked.
