Abstract This document provides guidance on Schedule 2 of the Offshore Installations and Wells (Design and Construction) Regulations 1996 (DCR) which amends the Offshore Installations (Safety Case) Regulations 1992 (SCR). The amendment introduces requirements for the safety-critical elements of an offshore installation to be verified as suitable by an independent and competent person. These requirements replace the certification regime established by the Offshore Installations (Construction and Survey) Regulations 1974 which are revoked by the DCR. Guidance is also given on other amendments to the SCR concerning mainly well operations and protection against toxic gas.
