New timetable for the Basic Data Programme approved by the Finance Committee of the Danish Parliament


Last fall, a new timetable was adopted for the Basic Data Programme postponing the implementation of parts of the new property registers until 2019. This timetable, resulting in additional costs of DKK 52.9 million for the programme, was approved by the Finance Committee of the Danish Parliament 18 January 2017.

As a result of the new timetable, there will be additional costs of DKK 11.7 million for the programme in 2018. The remaining costs of DKK 41.2 million will fall in the period 2019-2027. Together with the parties to the Basic Data Programme, the government has assessed that these additional costs align with the public sector’s desire to reduce the complexity of property registration and user needs to test data from the new basic data registers.

A united public sector is behind the decision

The Basic Data Programme is a cross-institutional programme organisation, in which the central government, regional governments and municipal governments co-operate towards improving the quality of data as well as access to central registers in Denmark. This creates the foundation for more efficient administration within the public sector. It also provides private businesses with the opportunity to create growth and innovation by making use of the new basic data.

Total costs for the programme amount to DKK 673.7 million. The participating parties strongly support the Basic Data Programme, and the programme has already delivered a number of results and quality improvements which will benefit a wide range of users in the years to come.
