As of 1 January 2021, all large and listed companies and state-owned public limited companies are obligated to report on their data ethics policies (in Danish: Politik for dataetik). Such reporting must be included in the annual reports, or alternatively published on the company websites. If a company has not implemented a data ethics policy, the annual report must include a description of the reason why such a policy has not been implemented.

The purpose of this requirement is to provide transparency in the companies’ work with data ethics and to encourage companies to take responsibility and make efforts to ensure good data ethics.

It is expected that data ethics will become a competitive resource for Danish companies, as the reporting obligation makes it possible for business partners, customers and investors to gain insight into the companies’ focus on and levels of data ethics
