Having assisted the industry with the evolution of diving and ROV operations auditing and assurance, including the development of key auditing tools, Namaka Subsea are in a unique position to provide experienced technical and operational auditing of ROV contractors against best industry practices and global legislation.
ROV Assurance Audits Delivering Peace of Mind
Auditing and assurance play a crucial part in ensuring the safety and integrity of any ROV system and efficient operations. Therefore, it is essential that all ROV systems are audited by a competent auditor, capturing and documenting all findings, whether the audit is conducted periodically and/or as required by the contractor's internal auditing practices.
At Namaka Subsea, we specialise in providing comprehensive ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) assurance audits to ensure the reliability, safety, and efficiency of subsea operations. Our dedicated team of experts conducts thorough assessments and evaluations of ROV systems, providing valuable insights and recommendations to optimize performance and mitigate risks.
Our ROV auditors have a wealth of experience, from observation classes to full trenching systems. With this knowledge and experience, our clients can be confident that projects are carried out both safely and efficiently in accordance with best industry practices and geographical legislation.
ROV contractor audits, whether technical or operational, should be carried out in a reasonable time before any subsequent project or annual audit requirements and per the industry's current best practices. It is no longer acceptable to carry out ROV contractor audits after the contract award or during the project mobilisation, with time restrictions as a limiting factor.
Due to the introduction of new laws within the UK for corporate manslaughter, which would hold the End Client (Operator) accountable as well as the ROV Contractor, the Association of International Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) member Operators decided their duty of care should be increased with the development of assurance.
