About UFDS

Products

UFDS offers industrial injury insurance, comparable industrial injury insurance for foreign-flagged ships and personal property insurance. Find out more about our products and insurance terms and conditions.

Application for policy

Premium rates are determined by the board and are sufficient to ensure UFDS a high degree of creditworthiness and liquidity in the event that a member shipowner is involved in an exceptional incident. This happens rarely, however, and members often receive a refund in the following year once the financial statements have been approved. Go to premium rates with repayment.

Please note that UFDS is also required to collect a range of statutory and voluntary contributions from Danish Shipping (compensation for war injuries), SEA HEALTH & WELFARE (welfare contribution and health and safety contribution), and the Danish Maritime Authority (health insurance). 

All Danish shipping companies must pay these contributions, regardless of whether they have taken out industrial injury insurance with UFDS.
