Danish Industrial Classifi­cations

Dansk Branchekode in relation to International classifications

What is Dansk Branchekode?

Dansk Branchekode is the National version of EU's nomenklatur (NACE).
The first four digits refer to NACE rev. 2, while the last two represent the Danish subdivision.
Dansk Branchekode is a statistical classification of economic activities.

Dansk Branchekode 2007 (DB07) is very similar to NACE rev. 2. The only difference is the subdivision of some classes, e.g. 64.20.10 indicates that NACE Rev. 2 class 64.20 has been subdivided whereas 38.31.00 indicates that class 38.31 has not been subdivided. 

  • On RAMON, which is EU's classification database, you can find further information about NACE or other International classifications.
  • Conversion key between the two NACE revisions (Rev. 1.1 and Rev. 2), which DB03 and DB07 are based on.
