Auditing and assurance plays a crucial part in ensuring the safety and integrity of any ROV system as well as ensuring 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.
Previously ROV system audits relied only on IMCA R006 Standard ROV Auditing Document which provides a basic/standard template approach for ROV documentation for assurance records associated with a project but has not been revised since July 2017 to reflect current industry practices.
ROV contractor audits, whether technical or operational should be carried out in a reasonable time ahead of any subsequent project or annual audit requirements and in accordance with industry-current best practices. It is no longer acceptable to carry out an ROV contractor audit after the award of a contract 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 Producer (IOGP) member Operators decided their duty of care should be increased with the development of assurance.
Furthermore, the course gives additional guidance to the International Marine Contractors Association in areas such as the requirements of The Association of International Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP). These requirements may include the introduction of a bespoke audit document to be generated detailing individual client/company needs.
