DMA continues to abolish special requirements for Danish shipping

Del

A benchmark analysis shows that Denmark has 33 special requirements for ships flying the Danish flag. Four requirements have already been abolished and the benchmark analysis will be used actively to revise or abolish the remaining special requirements.

Director General Andreas Nordseth from the Danish Maritime Authority:
“Denmark is characterized by quality shipping and Deloitte’s benchmark analysis confirms that Denmark is a good place to conduct maritime business. We have been alleviating burdens for a long time and we have already abolished four of the 33 special requirements identified in the analysis. Now, with this analysis in hand, we will take initiatives to make it even more attractive to fly the Danish flag.”

The benchmark analysis was carried out by Deloitte on the basis of a decision by the Danish Government’s Implementation Committee. It was examined to what extent Denmark gold-plates five international conventions or has other additional special requirements compared to Germany, Malta, Norway, Singapore and the United Kingdom. The analysis has identified 33 special requirements. These include, inter alia, requirements related to the construction of ships, inspections, certification and reporting obligations. The Implementation Committee has asked the Danish Maritime Authority to align the requirements with those of the neighbouring countries.

As of 1 January 2017, four of the 33 special requirements have been abolished, including a requirement to report information on the signing on and signing off. In the coming months, additional revisions of requirements will be initiated in order to further alleviate the burdens imposed on the maritime industry.

The report has also been sent to the Maritime Strategy Team for the Blue Denmark.

“The Danish Maritime Authority sets the direction for future quality shipping”

Our field of responsibility is based on the shipping industry and its framework conditions, the ship and its crew. In addition, we are responsible for aids to navigation in the waters surrounding Denmark and ashore. In other words, the Danish Maritime Authority has the responsibility for the following:

  • The construction, equipment and operation of Danish ships (including safety, terror prevention, navigational regulations, manning, occupational health and environmental protection) as well as port State control of foreign ships calling at Danish ports.
  • Ship registration.
  • Seafarers’ employment, health and conditions of social security.
  • Shipping policy, maritime law as well as industrial policy, both nationally and internationally.
  • Tasks related to aids to navigation at sea and ashore (lighthouses and buoys), including ships and repair workshops.
  • Navigational information in the form of navigational analyses, warnings, GIS and specialist publications.
  • The national pilot authority.

The Danish Maritime Authority consists of the central authority, eight survey offices, including the office in Nuuk, Greenland, as well as the Centre of Maritime Health and Safety on the island of Fanø.

Our responsibility as a government agency applies both to the merchant fleet and the fishing industry. However, the Danish Maritime Authority is not responsible for the industrial policy relating to fishing which is under the auspices of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries.

Please observe that the surveillance of Danish waters and of civilian shipping, sovereignty enforcement, the police authority, pollution prevention, environmental surveillance, ice-breaking, etc. are the responsibility of the Ministry of Defence.

The Danish Maritime Authority is a government agency under the Ministry of Business and Growth.
