Explanation:
can also be "serviceverkstad", where verkstad=repair shop.

auktoriserad serviceleverantör


Explanation:
The word "agent" has a very strict legal meaning in the Swedish language (somebody who acts on and signs on behalf of somebody else). If that is not explicitly the case one should avoid the word "agent" in the Swedish language.

ackrediterad servicepersonal


Explanation:
Är det begrepp som en rullstolstillverkare själv använder, se ref nedan.

Huruvida detta är vedertaget eller ej, vet jag inte, men någon auktorisation för service av rullstolar tror jag inte förekommer.

Ackrediterad betyder helt enkelt att tilverkaren själv godkänt vederbörande firma, eller person.
