Chiropodists who have received their education outside Denmark, including those from the Nordic countries and EU/EEA countries, must obtain Danish authorization in order to use the title of chiropodist in Denmark.

Authorisation Process

The authorisation process and the required documentation depend on the country of your nationality and the country where you obtained your qualification as a chiropodist. 

Stay Informed

Until you receive Danish authorisation and permission to work independently as a chiropodist, it is your responsibility to stay informed about any changes to the authorisation proces and deadlines.


As stated in the Danish Authorisation Act, chiropodists are required to practice their profession with care and conscientiousness. This also includes maintaining sound communication with patients, their families, and other healthcare professionals. The relevant authority evaluates whether the chiropodist meets the criteria outlined in the Danish Authorisation Act.  

The 75-Year Rule

The entitlement to practice as a chiropodist expires at the age of 75.
