Relevant self-service solutions regarding working environment in Denmark.

Apply for recognition of professional qualifications acquired abroad
Some professional qualifications must be assessed and approved by Arbejdstilsynet - the Danish Working Environment Authority (WEA) - if they have been acquired abroad. This applies to a number of job functions in industry and construction. Qualifications must be approved before the employee is allowed to work in Denmark.
