Railway safety

The Danish Transport and Construction Agency regulates and enforces provisions in the fields of safety and interoperability.

Our website caters for the needs of the Danish railway sector in terms of providing and structuring information about the regulatory framework, procedures, conditions, international cooperation. Furthermore we focus on the future railway, and the dialogues and consultations between the sector and Danish Transport and Construction Agency, and the role of the Danish Transport and Construction Agency in connection with The Rail Net Denmark Signalling Programme.

The Danish site is divided into the following main sections:

Each main section is divided into a number of sub-sections that explain in detail the regulatory framework, procedures and conditions related to the main section in question. Moreover, the sub-sections link to relevant legislation, fact sheets and guidelines.
