New compliance strategy for the offshore industry - COVID-19

News announcement - Published 30 March, 2020

NOPSEMA has endorsed a new compliance strategy for effectively regulating the offshore industry during the COVID-19 pandemic.

NOPSEMA recognises that COVID-19 presents significant challenges for industry and the broader public.

Therefore, NOPSEMA wishes to clearly communicate its approach and demonstrate that it’s addressing challenges in an agile and responsive way.

As outlined in the strategy, NOPSEMA will focus on the provision of advice, assistance and support to dutyholders to ensure offshore energy activities can continue to be undertaken in a safe and responsible way.

As such, NOPSEMA will give priority to facilities and activities that are providing essential services in the form of contributing to, or maintaining, energy needs in the short to medium term.

This approach may need to be modified in response to broader developments over time and as such, this policy is likely to evolve.
