The audit was conducted on 1 June 2023.


The objective of the audit was to gain insight into the company's governing documents, internal requirements, processes and procedures related to certification and recertification of drilling BOPs with control systems. It was also important to verify that rolling five-year recertification is structured so as to ensure that all components are covered and that recertification can be documented at all times.


Three non-conformities were identified, concerning:

  • verification and regulatory compliance
  • documentation of overhauling and recertification
  • specification of regulatory requirements

What happens next?

We have asked Odfjell to report to us by 14 August 2023 on how the non-conformities will be addressed.
