Offshore Safety Directive Regulator formed

The Health and Safety Executive and the Department of Energy and Climate Change has formed the Offshore Safety Directive Regulator. OSDR will act as the Competent Authority responsible for implementing the requirements of the EU Directive on the safety of offshore oil and gas operations.

The UK is required to implement Directive 2013/30/EU on the safety of offshore oil and gas operations by 19th July, 2015.

It is designed to reduce, as far as possible, the occurrence of major accidents related to offshore oil and gas operations and to mitigate their consequences.

A website has been created for OSDR to provide information and guidance on its activities
