Swedish term or phrase: ledningsordning
For ledningskedjan, I have translated it as "chain of command" (but am open to suggestions/comments". Ideas for "ledningsordning"?

Thanks.

Here is the paragraph:

Ledningskedjan på skadeplatsen måste också klarläggas så att det sker ett gemensamt arbete för att hantera det som inträffat. För detta krävs en i förväg klarlagd ledningsordning både mellan olika organisationer men också inom de enskilda organisationerna.

perhaps? as it refers to both intra- and inter- in this case..

"Chain of command" is good choice, I think.
