To register a merchant ship with a foreign owner in a Danish ship register, there is a requirement of economic activity in Denmark relating to the ship. This is called the activity requirement.
- A tonnage certificate issued by a Danish authorised tonnage measurer.
- A certificate of deletion or a non-registration certificate (original) if the ship is imported to Denmark.
- Proof of ownership of the ship for example, in the form of a builder's certificate, a ship deed or a bill of sale (title deed) (original).
- An application for registration of the Shipowner if the Shipowner is not registered in the Register of Shipping.
