HSE's Energy Division (ED) is responsible for the offshore oil and gas industry. Our strategy and priorities for the sector are set out in the Offshore Oil and Gas Sector Strategy 2014 - 2017 under the following:
Make an impact - influence safety management with a career in HSE
HSE and DECC, working in partnership, have formed the Offshore Safety Directive Regulator (OSDR), to act as the Competent Authority responsible for implementing the requirements of the EU Directive on the safety of offshore oil and gas operations.
A website has been created for OSDR, to provide information and guidance on its activities.
The consultation, which ended on 24 September 2014 sought views on the UK’s approach to implementing the Directive, including proposals for new regulations and for establishing a competent authority.
The summary report on the outcome of the public consultation is now published.
