Contractual compliance

Regulatory compliance with applicable continental shelf legislation forms the backbone of any permit to operate. Such requirements are subject to constant change: on the one hand, due to calls for higher safety levels and, other the other, the need for lower costs as a result of falling oil prices and ever higher exploration costs.

DNV works with a host of oil majors, operators, vessel owners and suppliers. Our expertise and position enables us to support you in identifying operator requirements, assessing the state of your vessel or fleet and suggesting compensating measures, if needed.  

For example, our newly launched pre-vetting support service is now easing the vetting process for OSV owners. 

Key services in this area include:

  • Fleet condition management as well as benchmarking, process optimisation and cost cutting
  • Condition management optimisation with a GAP analysis of operator requirements and the state of the vessel 
  • Pre-vetting support 
  • A safety and reliability assessment and the verification of the safety and reliability of your systems and components
  • Verification and certification of assets and materials and components
