Executive orders

The Danish Working Environment Act is on a current basis supplemented by Executive Orders, which contain more detailed regulation. Executive Orders are rules of law which are legally binding on the enterprises and which usually contain rules on penal sanctions.

Acts and regulations in English are unofficial translations and meant purely as a guidance tool. The Danish Working Environment Authority does not assume any liability for their contents in English. Only acts and regulations in Danish are official version and in force. In case of discrepancy, the original Danish text shall prevail.

Please note that the below-mentioned rules may be outdated. We refer to retsinformation.dk where you can find the rules in force, but only in Danish.
