Abstract This report is one of a series addressing general issues relevant to blast and fire engineering for offshore structures. Regulations, codes of practice and certification requirements used in the specification and certification of blast and fire resistant structures are identified and summarised. In general, there is a lack of any regulations or guidance relating to the treatment of explosions offshore, while documents relating to fire stem largely from the shipping and onshore building industries. The implications of the report of the public inquiry into the Piper Alpha disaster are also discussed.
