The audit was conducted from 7 May to 24 November 2021.
This audit was a follow-up of similar supervision of Rowan in 2020, in which the company gave notice of changes in the organisation of the business and the introduction of a new common maintenance management system for Valaris internationally.
The objective of the audit was to obtain information and knowledge from Rowan about follow-up of changes in the management system. Particular emphasis was placed on the company's maintenance management and support functions outside of Norway, within selected disciplines.
The audit identified four non-conformities. These concerned:
- Follow-up of changes in support functions
- Securing of Norwegian regulatory competence and responsibility therefore
- Work permit system
- Monitoring of loss of containment failure mechanism
What happens now?
We have asked Rowan to report by 12 April 2022 on how the non-conformities will be addressed.
