Register your tanning salon or solarium

All solariums/tanning salons in Denmark must be registered at the Danish Safety Technology Authority according to Act on Solariums, Act No. 718 of 25 June 2014.

How to register

The registration is made by sending information to the Danish Safety Technology Authority about:

  • name and address of the solarium
  • name of the owner or lessee

This information is compulsory.

Additionally, the Danish Safety Technology Authority wants some other information; this is, however, optional to provide:

  • number of sunbeds with UV-type 1, 2, 3, 4 or unknown UV-type, respectively
  • is the solarium operated with no permanent staff or is trained or untrained personnel employed?

Requirements for non EU citizens and businesses

The same requirements apply as for EU citizens and businesses.


No fee required.

When can I expect an answer?

You will not get a reply after registration by letter, fax or e-mail. The registration of a solarium/tanning salon will appear in the register with the mandatory information, which will be published on the Danish Safety Technology Authority’s website.


Information about registered solariums is available here.
