The audit was conducted between 28 November and 2 December 2022, with the assistance of the Civil Aviation Authority Norway.


The objective of the audit was to verify processes and systems that contribute to ensuring the comprehensive management of emergency preparedness, and to verify that the helidecks comply with regulatory requirements in order to help ensure safe helicopter operations and personnel transport.


Within emergency preparedness, we identified one non-conformity concerning the system for an overview of personnel.

We also identified two improvement points during the audit. These concerned:

  • System for training and drilling deputies
  • Registration of training

Concerning the helidecks, 8 non-conformities were detected on Oseberg A and 13 non-conformities on Oseberg C. These appear in separate non-conformity reports from the Civil Aviation Authority Norway, at the bottom of this page.

What happens now?

We have asked Equinor to report to us by 12 February 2023 on how the non-conformity will be addressed, and for their assessment of the improvement points observed.
