Environmental inspection

Danish regulations
The municipalities of Denmark and the Environmental Protection Agency must conduct environmental inspections. Inspections must investigate compliance with the legislation and rules established pursuant to the Danish Environmental Protection Act or the Danish Livestock Farming Environmental Approval Act.

Fee for inspection
Fees are charged from certain companies, livestock farms, facilities and others to partly cover the costs incurred by local and central government authorities in connection with permits and inspections.

Minimum inspection frequencies
The agreement on minimum frequencies expresses minimum numbers of inspections for certain categories of industrial enterprises and livestock farms. The enterprises and livestock farms that cause the most pollution are to be the most investigated.
