Report on effective inspection regimes
The report concerns inspection activities carried out by five government bodies. The purpose of the study has been to collect and communicate knowledge of the organisation of effective inspection. Enterprises must be familiar with and comply with current legislation and provisions, but inspection may enhance regulatory compliance and thereby contribute to improving the level of security within the respective policy areas.
Rigsrevisionen audits public spending on behalf of the Danish parliament and seeks to strengthen the accountability of public administration to the benefit of the citizens. We audit the government accounts and financial statements of publicly funded enterprises, and verify the legality and effective use of public funds. We conduct our audits in compliance with the Danish standards for public-sector auditing.
