The Danish Maritime Authority (Danish: Søfartsstyrelsen) is a government agency of Denmark that regulates maritime affairs. Its headquarters are in Valby, Copenhagen. Previously they were in another facility in Copenhagen.
Previously the authority's Division for Investigation of Maritime Accidents investigated maritime accidents. A European Union directive asks countries to establish maritime investigation authorities that are independent of the maritime administration divisions. The bill L xx caused Denmark to establish a new maritime investigation agency. The Danish Maritime Accident Investigation Board now handles investigations of maritime accidents.
