MARPRO is presenting the Rising Star of the week series. A series dedicated to innovative and promising maritime start-ups, which contribute to a smarter, cleaner and safer maritime future. The series is based on the applicants for the Rising Stars Pavilion competition to participate in EUROPORT 2021.


A new concept is coming to life at EUROPORT 2021, the Rising Stars Pavilion powered by MARPRO. An area fully dedicated for promising maritime start-ups and next-gen innovators, where they can demonstrate how they contribute to a smarter, cleaner or/safer maritime future.

One of the companies happens to be the Danish located start-up, DanCompliance, servicing customers worldwide with ensuring regulatory compliance. Make acquaintance of DanCompliance in the following interview:

What is the idea behind DanCompliance, its services?

DanCompliance help maritime companies to stay updated on the regulatory requirements that apply for their products and services. In February 2020, we launched the web portal MARINEREGULATIONS.

MARINEREGULATIONS is a web portal with maritime rules, where maritime companies easily and quickly can find all the rules that are relevant for them. Companies can also sign up for tailor‐made reports, see future requirements and receive e‐mail notifications when there are relevant changes in the rules.

How can DanCompliance contribute to a smarter maritime future?

Dan Compliance’s services in general, but especially the new web portal, MARINEREGULATIONS, are relevant to almost all maritime companies and have the potential to change how companies work with regulatory compliance.

The web portal, MARINEREGULATIONS, will ensure better compliance in the industry and at the same time ease the regulatory burden, so that companies save time and money.

How can DanCompliance contribute to a cleaner or safer maritime future?

By helping Maritime companies to stay updated on rules and regulations for environment, safety, and sustainability, DanCompliance indirectly contribute to a cleaner and safer maritime future.

Where is DanCompliance in 5 years from now?

The market consists of all maritime companies that have to comply with or have an interest in following regional and/or international maritime regulation. As MARINEREGULATIONS is web‐based and can be made available worldwide. The market has no geographic limitations and the potential market for the sale of subscriptions is therefore estimated to be more than 250 million EUR.

Our ambition is to create an international company that is the market leader in digital solutions for regulatory information for the maritime industry. The expectation is by the end of 2025 to have expanded the organization to 20‐30 employees divided between the company’s offices in Croatia, Denmark, and the UK.

How is DanCompliance organized, and who are the key people?

The head office of Dancompliance is located in Herlev, Denmark. Sales & Marketing is established in Cambridge, UK and a Content Management department has been established in Zagreb, Croatia. Dancompliance was founded by Ronni Palmqvist (DK), who is the director and owner of the company. Ronni has worked with regulatory compliance, product development and quality assurance in the maritime industry for over 15 years. Douglas Farina (UK) is sales manager in the company, with responsibility for global sales and management of our sales representatives. With his experience selling SaaS products, he is a valuable member of the team. Danijela Tejic (CR) is head of the Content Management department in Zagreb, Croatia.
