This paper examines the Danish policy for this area, through a study of the demolition of a public school in the municipal Dragør in the Copenhagen area, and a review of the regulation, how environmentally dangerous substances in the construction sector is handled. In Denmark, there is a high amount of recycling of materials from demolition or restoration of buildings. However, these buildings often has environmentally dangerous substances in the materials. This requires the regulation to be clear on how to identify and handle the substances in the demolition or restoration process. However, the current regulation of the substances has a lot of focus on PCB. Other substances identified in buildings are common, but the regulation of these leaves a lot to be read by the municipal authority, which may cause different outcomes in different cases. In the analysis, the paper researches how different types of stakeholders in the Danish construction sector read the regulation, and then the paper discusses how the future framework of the regulation of the substances can be formed to improve on these processes. The paper concludes that the regulation in its current form needs improvement in order to have sufficient requirements for identifying, analyzing and handling materials from buildings, which are being demolished or restored.
