DANAK accredits companies, including laboratories, so that they can offer accredited products or services in a number of areas, eg calibration, certification or inspection. Read about accreditation areas here.

The schemes can be established on the basis of regulatory requirements, for example on the basis of a directive or an executive order. The schemes can also be based on an ISO standard or be set as voluntary schemes in the individual industries.

A product or service must be approved by DANAK before an accreditation can be applied for. See the list of schemes where DANAK accreditations can currently be found: list of schemes (in Danish) and list of methods.
