The Danish Air Navigation Act
The Danish aviation legislation is based on the Danish Air Navigation Act that provides the framework of the regulation of civil aviation in Denmark.
The Act authorises the Minister of Transport to lay down specified regulations for civil aviation and this authority has been delegated to the Danish Civil Aviation and Railway Authority, cf. Order on delegation of authorities to the Danish Civil Aviation and Railway Authority (the Delegation Order).
Danish Civil Aviation and Railway Authority issues "Regulations for Civil Aviation (BL) and Orders. The regulations are divided into 11 series that cover the different flight safety aspects of the complete air transportation system.
The aviation legislation in Denmark is largely based on standards that have been adopted within the international aviation organisations.
The standards are established globally within the UN international aviation organisation ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation).
In Europe it is the EU agency EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) that are responsible for the work with harmonising the flight safety rules and standards.
Furthermore the European organisation EUROCONTROL is preparing harmonised standards for the use of the European airspace, and also these joint standards are continuously being incorporated in the Danish regulations.
State Safety Programme - Denmark
In 2013, the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) acceded to new regulations (a new Annex 19), which require that Contracting States prepare State Safety Programmes (SSPs) as standard.
