Danish Standards is a non-profit commercial foundation. Their profits are ploughed back into the development of new activities for the benefit of society and the corporate sector.
Danish Standards is the national standardisation organisation in Denmark. They contribute to the work of the European organisations CEN, CENELEC and ETSI, and the international standardisation organisations ISO and IEC. Danish Standards chooses to implement most of the standards from these organisations in Denmark. When a European or international standard has been implemented in Denmark, this is reflected in the title, e.g. DS/EN or DS/ISO. The contents are similar to those in the EN or ISO standard that can be purchased in another country. It is available in either English or Danish.
Their primary fields of activity include:
Sale of standards and handbooks
Courses and conferences
Within their core activity of standardisation, Danish Standards has concluded a performance contract with the Ministry of Business and Growth. The contract sets out the framework and objectives for their activities as a national standardisation organisation. A performance contract with the Danish Environmental Protection Agency concerning the EU and Nordic ecolabels, the so-called Flower and the Swan, has also been concluded
