Agreements with other regulatory authorities
HSE has agreed with a number of other regulatory authorities the approach to be taken when considering action in respect of incidents relevant to certain sectors. These agreements are generally set out in Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) and Agency Agreements. The agreements contain much useful information and guidance to support the section 3 policy, but they should not be used to make decisions as to whether or not to investigate any particular incident. Such decisions should be made with regard to Section 3, HSW Act: Policy and these instructions.
