Installation & Commissioning
Global SCS’ validation services helps you to demonstrate management of safety on offshore facilities in accordance with the OPGGS regulations 2009.
It is a form of independent certification, of engineered systems and equipment at an offshore facility, which provides NOPSEMA with an increased level of assurance that the systems and equipment will fulfil their safety functions.
It is required by NOPSEMA that the operator of a proposed or an existing facility to provide validation:
- In respect of the proposed facility; or
- In respect of a proposed significant change to an existing facility.
The validation must establish, to the level of assurance reasonably required by NOPSEMA:
In the case of a proposed facility—that the design, construction and installation (including instrumentation, process layout and process control systems) of the facility incorporate measures that:
- will protect the health and safety of persons at the facility; and
- are consistent with the formal safety assessment for the facility
In the case of an existing facility—that, after any proposed change or changes, the facility incorporate measures that will protect the health and safety of persons at or near the facility.
Global SCS as an independent body can be involved with the following:
- Review and confirm that the agreed safety critical systems and equipment will fulfil (or continue to fulfil) their required safety functions under normal conditions and in the event of an accident or emergency
- Validate that the systems and equipment will meet the necessary performance standards, as determined by the formal safety and risk assessment
- Create and validation plan that is consistent with the safety case and the safety assessment of the installation
Global SCS' as an appointed Independent Competent Person / Independent verification body through their offshore verification services ensures that all Major Accident Hazards (MAH’s) pertaining to an offshore installation are adequately managed throughout the installation life cycle.
The UK regulations now follow a fully goal setting approach and aim for continuing safety improvements.
