Inspection of Production Facilities

The Danish Environment Protection Agency carry out inspections with production of GMO throughout the country.

The EPA has supervisory duties of the facilities in regard to:

  • General provision in the law of environment and gene technology.
  • Prerequisites for terms of approvals of the law.
  • Compliance of injunctions and prohibitions of the law.

An inspection is fee rated. The fee can be charged after each inspection or once per year for the inspection in the current year

Investigations and consultancy services in reference to the inspection can be initiated from notification of the company.
