Assessment Principles for Offshore Safety Cases (APOSC) sets out the principles against which OSDR assesses safety cases
The following framework diagram describes the process by which OSDR will assess safety cases.
Topic specialist assessment templates have been developed for all topic disciplines for use by OSDR topic specialists to assist in the assessment of safety cases.
Duty holders are asked to complete, as a minimum, the Safety Case Initial Review template, which significantly speeds up the assessment process. Duty holders are also strongly encouraged to complete other topic discipline templates, as experience has found this speeds up the assessment process further, and improves the quality of regulatory submissions.
