Main article: ISO 3166-2

ISO 3166-2:DK is the entry for Denmark in ISO 3166-2, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which defines codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Denmark, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 5 regions.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is DK, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Denmark. The second part is two digits (81–85).

Subdivision names are listed as in the ISO 3166-2 standard published by the ISO 3166 Maintenance Agency (ISO 3166/MA).

Subdivision names are sorted in Danish alphabetical order: a-z, æ, ø, å.
