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 summary report on the outcome of the 2014 public consultation has been published.
Offshore Installations (Offshore Safety Directive) (Safety Case etc) Regulations 2015 (SCR 2015) were laid on 23 March 2015. An early working draft of the SCR 2015 guidance on regulations, is now available to view and comment on until 22 May 2015. The guidance will be finalised before the new regulations come into force.
