AKOFS has applied for an Acknowledgement of Compliance for the AKOFS Seafarer mobile drilling facility.

In connection with an AoC application, the PSA conducts audits within selected specialist domains.

On 3 and 4 December 2019, we carried out an audit of AKOFS and their organisation and management system.

During the audit, the facility was in the process of being prepared for operation on the NCS.


The objective of the audit was to verify that the company’s management system and the follow-up thereof meet the regulatory requirements.


No non-conformities were identified.Two improvement points were identified relating to:

  • Competence
  • Involvement of the safety service

What happens next?

AKOFS has been given a deadline of 28 February 2020 to report on how the improvement points will be addressed.
