The Register of Authorised Health Personnel (AUT) is based on data from the Danish Health Authority's authorisation system. Data in AUT comprises historical authorisation data as well as the new data regularly entered into the system as part of processing individual authorisation cases by the Danish Health Authority.

AUT contains details of authorisations, authorisations for self-employment and special recognition granted by the Danish Health Authority for individuals (live and dead). The register covers the majority of all the authorisations issued by the Danish Health Authority over the years. The date when various professional groups appear in the register depends on when they fell within the remit of the Danish Health Authority's authorisation system.
