Marine aids to navigation


If you need to establish aids to navigation, for example in connection with a coming activity or the placing of an installation in territorial waters, you must first acquire a permit from the Danish Maritime Authority.​

Permits to establish aids to navigation are granted on a number of conditions related to, inter alia, the position, type, maintenance or warnings. If you need to change, move or discontinue aids to navigation, you must also acquire a permit beforehand.

Guidance for the various types of aids to navigation as well as their use is available from our publication Aids to navigation in Danish waters (Danish).

The principles governing aids to navigation and issues related to the distribution of costs are described in more detail in the order on aids to navigation in Danish and Greenland buoyage area, etc.
