The present DNV OSS provides a general statement of the services offered by DNV classification societies, one of the world leaders in this fiels, relating to the core compliance matters for vessel and offshore installations owners/operators proposed for entering and operation in UK waters. The UK regulations SCR and PFEER require that all major accident hazards pertaining to an offshore installation are identified and adequately managed throughout the installation lifecycle. This is achieved by a combination of assessing and verifying an acceptable standard of integrity of the installation, safety of operation and protection of personnel. The regulations establish a 'goal setting" (non-prescriptive) approach which enables appropriate effort to be focused on those items which provide the greatest contribution to safety. The principal aims of the present regulations are to identify all credible hazards that are directly relating to an installation, and eliminate hazards through design where it is possible, assess and reduce rpossible isks from major accident hazards to a level that is as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP), identify, implement and maintain an appropriate combination of inherent safe design, prevention, detection, as well as control and mitigation measures, for the management of these risks throughout the working life of the installation, ensure that systems and equipment for personnel protection in an emergency are suitable and capable of responding to all foreseeable safety-related incidents, ensure that above stated measures are undertaken by competent people understanding the significance of the systems in the management of hazards and possible escalating events, assess changes to the installation which may affect the risks, and revise the systems where necessary to take account of the changes...
