Objective and scope

General

As the UK regulations are 'goal setting' and aim for continual safety improvement, the regulations cannot be fully transferred into prescriptive technical requirements. However, it is possible to identify major points that shall be considered, and to provide services toward fulfilment. The objective of this document is to provide a general statement of the services DNV can provide for UK compliance, with reference to how these services can be used with classification. This includes, but is not limited to:

a) Consultancy services:

Safety engineering during design and construction, risk analysis and assessment, PFEER assessment, identification of safety and environmental-critical elements and performance standards, ALARP methodology, safety case preparation.

b) Verification services:

Actions as appointed verifier, review of list of safety and environmental-critical elements and performance standards, drafting or review of verification schemes, implementation of verification activities, maintenance and revision of verification schemes. It is expected in the regulations that the verifier is consulted during the drafting of the scheme and performance standards.

Detailed information on these services can be obtained based on discussions for specific installations and/or client needs.

Application

General

DNV independent verification and/or consultancy services can be applied for any unit or installation which is located, or intended to be located, in UK waters. This includes fixed installations, floating installations to be located at a specific location, and mobile units (e.g. MODU). Well service vessels are classed as offshore installations (MAR Reg. 3 Guidance 2005).

The services can be applied to verification of existing facilities or new build installations (project phase). However, as many of the key compliance issues concern adequacy of specification, design and construction, it is recommended that compliance be considered as early as possible in the unit/installation lifecycle.

The specific UK requirements for timing of compliance aspects to different installations is stated, where applicable, in the separate sections of this document.

The services can be applied in isolation or can be used to give a combined approach to DNV classification and UK compliance.

DNV UK compliance services are directly applicable to verification of offshore installations for operation in UK waters. The approach may, however, also be suitable for verification of units/installations outside of UK waters.

This document does not include DNV services related to well verification. Please contact DNV directly for information on such services.
