The Danish Shipping has been permanently represented in Brussels since 1989.
The representation attends to all relations with the EU institutions and works to secure a better understanding of the shipping business at large.
The Brussels representation works both on a political and a practical level. It deals directly with the relevant commissioners and the European Parliament; at the same time it executes a number of administrative tasks relating to general directorates and permanent representations of other EU member states.
The representation works in the interest of the members of the Danish Shipping on all issues regarding the shipping industry.
Over the years it has established itself as a permanent adviser to the EU institutions. At the same time, the representatives sit in on all committees in the ESCA.
