The Danish Maritime Accident Investigation Board

The Danish Maritime Accident Investigation Board is an independent unit under the Ministry of Business and Growth.

We investigate maritime accidents and accidents to seafarers on Danish and Greenlandic merchant and fishing ships as well as accidents on foreign merchant ships in Danish and Greenlandic waters. Also, we investigate very serious accidents relating to diving operations.

The investigations of the Danish Maritime Accident Investigation Board procure information about the actual circumstances of accidents and clarify the sequence of events and reasons leading to these accidents. With this information in hand, others can take measures to prevent similar accidents in the future.

The aim of the investigation is not to establish legal or economic liability.

You can find more information about the DMAIB here.
