At completion, a copy of all survey data shall be submitted to the SCA. Decisions in adherence to section 1 may not be appealed to any other administrative authority. The Minister of Environment may lay down rules on the application form and the conditions attached to this authorization, as well as to establish rules concerning the delivery of survey data.

Authors and Publishers


Once the seat of Viking raiders and later a major north European power, Denmark has evolved into a modern, prosperous nation that is participating in the general political and economic integration of Europe. It joined NATO in 1949 and the EEC (now the EU) in 1973. However, the country has opted out of certain elements of the EU's Maastricht Treaty, including the European Economic and Monetary Union, European defense cooperation, and issues concerning certain justice and home affairs.

Denmark is a parliamentary constitutional monarchy.
