The Complaints Board for Domain Names is a specific board who handles complaints regarding the registration of domain names under the .dk domain. E.g. if you are convinced that you have specific interests or trademarks to a given .dk domain name, which some one else already has registered.

All complaints regarding .dk domain names are to be send to The Complaints Board for Domain Names. On the Boards website you will find a form that must be used in order to file a complaint.

Complaints fee
Simultaneously with the filed complaint, you have to pay a complaints-fee. The fee is 500 DKK for domain names with occupational meaning. The fee is 150 DKK for users which only use the domain name privately.

The fee will be refunded if you get wholly or partially right in your complaint.
