Reporting Incidents to OSDR

Operators and owners of offshore installations, and well operators, are required to report certain incidents to OSDR.

Operators and owners of offshore installations, and well operators, are required to report certain incidents to OSDR.

There is a requirement to report incidents under a number of pieces of legislation including:

There is some overlap between the reporting requirements of the different pieces of legislation. Furthermore, some of the voluntary requirements of the OIR12 form used to report data on RIDDOR hydrocarbon release is now mandatory under the new EU Regulation. To minimise the burden on industry, a single reporting tool is being developed for the reporting of incidents.

In the short term, a single, multi part, form has been produced for duty holders to complete following an incident reportable under any of the pieces of legislation. The form includes guidance on how to complete the relevant parts.

The ROGI form, once completed, shall be sent by email to: osdr.reporting@hse.gov.uk.

Duty holders are asked to use the new arrangements for reporting of an incident after an installation has an accepted transitional safety case under SCR2015. Until such time, duty holders are requested to continue to use existing reporting mechanisms. It is recognised that this may result in different reporting regimes for different installations operated by the same duty holder. OSDR is exploring the potential for the whole industry starting to use the new arrangements at the same time to prevent the differing reporting regimes.

The PON1 arrangements for reporting releases to sea remain unchanged, and are still required by DECC.
