The audit was conducted from 20 May to 3 June 2020.


The objective of the audit was to verify that Rowan’s own follow-up of the company’s management system within HSE complies with the regulations and the company’s own requirements, and that this follow-up contributes to major accident prevention and continuous safety improvement.


During the audit, one non-conformity was identified, relating to follow-up.

In addition, four improvement points were identified relating to:

  • Maintenance of the AoC
  • Number of safety delegates
  • Norwegian language
  • Quality procedure

What happens now?

We have asked Rowan to report on how the non-conformity will be addressed, and for their assessment of the improvement points observed. The deadline for reply is set at 1 September 2020.
