Changes to Marine Order 47 (Offshore Industry Units)

We are seeking your feedback on proposed changes to Marine Order 47 (Offshore Industry Units).

This consultation may be of interest to owners, operators and designers of offshore industry units, as well as recognised organisations. Offshore industry units include mobile offshore drilling units (MODUs), floating production, storage and offtake vessels (FPSOs), floating storage units (FSUs), floating liquefied natural gas facilities (FLNGs), floating central processing facilities (CPFs) and similar.

We are seeking your feedback on the following:

  • Does the draft marine order clarify obligations for the survey and certification of offshore industry units?
  • Does the marine order provide sufficient practicality in terms of complying with drydock alternatives such as in-water hull inspections?

The consultation is open until Monday 1 July 2019.

It is intended that these amendments will be made to the current order with effect from 1 October 2019.

Read the consultation paper and have your say.
