Denmark adopted an Act for the implementation of the Rome Statute in 2001. The Danish ICC Act covers only some aspects of the ICC cooperation regime, mainly relating to the enforcement of sentences or orders issued by the Court, which section in turn is not very detailed.. The Act does not contain any provisions on the crimes falling under the jurisdiction of the Court, and does not go beyond stating in its first Article that the Rome Statute is applicable to Denmark. Additional legislation is therefore needed.
