Let F be a local net of von Neumann algebras in four spacetime dimensions satisfying certain natural structural assumptions. We prove that if F has trivial superselection structure then every covariant, Haag-dual subsystem B is the fixed point net under a compact group action on one component in a suitable tensor product decomposition of F. Then we discuss some application of our result, including free field models and certain theories with at most countably many sectors.
