Offshore Safety Directive Regulator (OSDR)

Since the UK left the EU, the Offshore Major Accident Regulator (OMAR) is now the UKs Offshore Competent Authority (previously known as the Offshore Safety Directive Regulator (OSDR). How HSE regulate the offshore industry stays the same. Our guidance will be updated to reflect this change.

The Offshore Safety Directive Regulator is the Competent Authority responsible for overseeing industry compliance with the EU Directive on the safety of offshore oil and gas operations. The Directive was published following the Deepwater Horizon accident in the Gulf of Mexico.
