Upon application, the Danish Maritime Authority authorizes organizations to handle the administration of recreational sailing exams and the issuing of recreational sailor certificates.
The requirements set by the Danish Maritime Authority for an organization to be approved as a provider of exams follow from the agency's executive order on exams and certificates for recreational sailors. It also states which tasks a provider must carry out and what an approval includes. It is, among other things, management of the quality system and appointment of censors.
Matters surrounding insurance, including who must bear the costs for this, are not part of the Danish Maritime Authority's area of competence, and are not part of the agency's regulation in relation to providers. It is an inter partes relationship between the censor and the exam provider, who must therefore clarify matters themselves.
