Regulations in our area of responsibility

The key regulations relating to health, safety and the environment (HSE) in the offshore petroleum industry and at land-based facilities subject to our supervisory authority are found in two sets of regulations, for HSE and the working environment respectively.

HSE regulations 
Integrated and specific regulations for HSE in offshore petroleum operations and at certain land-based facilities are prepared and enforced jointly by the regulators for their respective areas of authority.

Working environment regulations 
Regulations pursuant to the Norwegian Working Environment Act are issued by the Ministry of Labour and enforced by the Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority and ourselves within our respective areas of authority.

Other regulations
A number of other specific regulations also apply to the petroleum sector, either directly by virtue of their scope or indirectly through their inclusion in the HSE regulations.
