For years Denmark has had a robust robot industry, and technology has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years, making drones better and cheaper. This development has opened new possibilities across industries. However, this also means new legal challenges.

New drone and robot technology with great potential

Compared to other countries, Denmark has forward-thinking and business-friendly regulations, which in the longer term provide the right framework for establishing and operating a competitive business in the European market. To succeed, however, businesses involved in the robot and drone industries should ensure that their approach complies with the new regulations for these industries.

Knowledge of applicable legislation is therefore essential. Professionals must especially pay attention to the requirements regarding pilots and drones, in addition to corporate responsibility and operating manuals. Noncompliance may lead to fines.

If you want to use drones abroad, we advise on how to comply with each country’s laws on the operation of drones, as well as with international regulations such as the European Privacy Regulation. Currently, we focus on Sweden, where the regulations on drones with cameras was recently tightened.
