Denmark has chosen a decentralised control system. When a Danish beneficiary has been notified that the South Baltic programme Steering Committee has approved the project in which the beneficiary takes part, the beneficiaries from Denmark will have to propose an independent external controller to the bodies responsible for setting up the first level control system.

Danish beneficiaries from Region Zealand to:

Region Zealand, Alleen 15, DK-4180 Sorö (RZ)


Danish beneficiaries from Bornholm to:

Regional Municipality of Bornholm, Ullasvej 23, DK-3700 Rönne (RB)


Due to the Statuary Order No 358 of 18th April 2007, § 27, 1, the controller have to be certified as either a "statsautoriseret" (State-Authorized Public Accountant) or a "registreret" (Registered Public Accountant) auditor. (

After being informed by the beneficiary about the controller selected, the approbation body will check the first level controller's qualification and independence based on the checklist filled in, such as that the controller is:

  • independent of the project, project activities and without private prejudice to the project owner,
  • experienced in controlling structural funds projects,
  • able to communicate (read, understand and write) in English,
  • familiar with the South Baltic Programme in general.

Before approbation of the controller, the approbation body will meet with the beneficiary and the controller selected, to introduce the general principles on the first level control, as well as the checklists, certificates and the other annexes connected to the South Baltic First Level Control. The approbation body confirms the positive assessment of the first level controller's qualification and independence by issuing the First Level Controller Approbation Certificate. The controller must be officially approved before the first expenditure can be reported and confirmed.

After each application round the approbation bodies will have a meeting with the beneficiaries and their selected first level controllers, where the FLC system and documents will be introduced in detail, as a precondition to approve the controller selected. Besides the above mentioned obligatory meetings for all new selected first level controllers, the South Baltic CBC Programme Contact Point in Denmark for all certified first level controller's will organise an annual training seminar, in order to provide the controller's with the necessary information on the implications of a control in compliance with the ERDF, national rules and the Programme characteristics.

The costs for the first level desk (desk verification and on-the-spot control) will be eligible costs in the project and to be borne by the beneficiary. The control cost will be calculated on the basis of an agreement between the beneficiary and the controller (e.g. service contract), and payments will be based on invoices issued by the controller to the beneficiary.
