We process your personal data for the following purposes:
Virksomheder skal anmelde laboratorier og projekter med genteknologi til Arbejdstilsynet. Dette skal ske med henblik på, at Arbejdstilsynet, i samarbejde med Miljøstyrelsen, står for godkendelse af disse laboratorier og projekter. Formålet er endvidere, at vi kan identificere, hvem der arbejder med genteknologisk forskning eller har faciliteter til dette arbejde.
Companies must report laboratories and projects with genetic technology to the Danish Working Environment Authority. This must be done, as the Danish Working Environment Authority, in collaboration with the Danish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), handles approvals of such laboratories and projects. The purpose is also that we can identify who works with genetic engineering research or has facilities for this work.
The basis in law for our processing of your personal data ensues from:
Bekendtgørelse om genteknologi og arbejdsmiljø, Arbejdstilsynets bekendtgørelse nr. 910 af 11. september 2008 med senere ændringer.
Executive order no. 910 of September 11th 2008 concerning gene technology and work environment.

Article 6, paragraph Article 1 (e) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and repealing Directive 95/46 / EC (Data Protection Regulation).
We process the following categories of personal data about you:
General information including:
Identification information regarding individuals who are involved in the work and companies that are responsible for the work / facilities, including:
Company name and address.
Name, telephone number, e-mail and education of people who work with the genetic technology in the company.
We disclose your personal data or make it available to the following recipients:
The Danish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) (Miljøstyrelsen).
We will not transfer personal data to recipients outside the EU and the EEA.
Companies, who wish to obtain approval of laboratories or projects with genetic technology, provide the data.
Currently, the Danish Work Environment Authority cannot say how long your data will be stored in connection with this processing of applications. However, we can inform you that we will emphasize that we only store your data as long as it is necessary to fulfil our obligations in accordance with Danish law.
The approval of applications will not be subject to any automatic assessment and profiling.
If personal information about you has been submitted, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. This can be done by contacting us.
If you choose to withdraw your consent, it does not affect the lawfulness of our processing of your personal data based on your previously given consent and up to the time of the withdrawal. Therefore, if you withdraw your consent, it will only take effect from this time.
As the Danish Work Environment Authority are gathering most personal data on the basis of our legislative obligations in accordance to Danish law, most of the collecting of data will not be based on a specific consent from you. When this is the case, a withdrawal of consent will rarely result in the Danish Work Environment Authority terminating any gathering or treating of your data. This is because your rights to not have data gathered and treated must be weighed against the countries right to a safe work environment.
Pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation, you have several rights in relation to our processing of data concerning you. If you wish to exercise your rights, you must contact us.
