Tasks

All of the Danish Safety Technology Authority's tasks are centred around technical safety. We cover different areas.

Authorisation and approval

The legislation covering the electricity, plumbing, gas and sewage installation fields regulates which types of installation work require authorisation or approval – and which can be carried out without authorisation or approval.

Cable installer

In Denmark, you must be authorised to run electrical cables. Individuals who have qualified as an electrician in Denmark or in another EU/EEA country are permitted to run electrical cables. In other words, such individuals may work as a cable installer in Denmark, regardless of whether they are employed by an authorised electrical contractor company.

Pipe fitter

In Denmark, you must be licensed to fit water pipes. Individuals who have qualified as a plumbing fitter or smith in Denmark or in another EU/EEA country are permitted to fit water pipes. In other words, such individuals may work as a pipe fitter in Denmark, regardless of whether they are employed by an authorised plumbing contractor company.

The Electrical Safety Act

Act on the Safety of Electrical Plants, Electrical Installations and Electrical Equipment (the Electrical Safety Act) has come into force on 1 January 2016.

Fireworks

We have gathered application forms, guidelines and other important documents concerning fireworks.

Working on switchboards can be involved with risk. We have made a video where you will learn about the procedures to avoid risk and take care of your own safety.
