Building Regulations 2015​

Building work in new and altered buildings in Denmark

The Building Regulations contain the Danish rules for building work in new buildings, extensions, conversions and other rebuilding work, as well as changes in the use of buildings that are important in relation to the Danish Building Act or the Building Regulations, the demolition of buildings and alterations and other rebuilding work that may affect the consumption of energy in the building. The Building Regulations apply to building work carried out in the Danish market.

Their primary field of application is multi-storey buildings for residential purposes and all kinds of commercial, industrial and institutional buildings, including the categories listed in section 11 of the Danish Building Act, single-family houses for permanent residence, either as detached single-family houses or linked single-family houses, holiday homes in summer house areas, allotment sheds, campsite cabins and garages, outbuildings, and other secondary buildings.

Scope

This European Standard specifies lighting requirements for humans in indoor work places, which meet the needs for visual comfort and performance of people having normal ophthalmic (visual) capacity. All usual visual tasks are considered, including Display Screen Equipment (DSE).

This European Standard specifies requirements for lighting solutions for most indoor work places and their associated areas in terms of quantity and quality of illumination. In addition recommendations are given for good lighting practice.
This European Standard does not specify lighting requirements with respect to the safety and health of people at work and has not been prepared in the field of application of Article 137 of the EC treaty, although the lighting requirements, as specified in this European Standard, usually fulfil safety needs. Lighting requirements with respect to the safety and health of workers at work can be contained in Directives based on Article 137 of the EC treaty, in national legislation of member states implementing these directives or in other national legislation of member states.
This European Standard neither provides specific solutions, nor restricts the designer's freedom from exploring new techniques nor restricts the use of innovative equipment. The illumination can be provided by daylight, artificial lighting or a combination of both.
This European Standard is not applicable for the lighting of outdoor work places and underground mining or emergency lighting. For outdoor work places, see EN 12464-2 and for emergency lighting, see EN 1838 and EN 13032-3.
