Proposals to replace the Offshore Installations (Safety Case) Regulations 1992

Consultation ended 10 September 2004



The 1992 Regulations came into effect in 1993 and require operators and owners of offshore installations to submit safety cases to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) for acceptance as a condition of operating in UK waters. The Health and Safety Commission (HSC) now considers they are in need of reform to improve the regulation and control of major hazards offshore. Your comments are sought on the HSC proposals to replace the Offshore Safety Case Regulations.
