Inspection policy open for comment

Closed 9 Nov 2021

Opened 12 Oct 2021


From 1 January 2022, NOPSEMA is adopting a new approach to its inspections, striking a balance between regular inspections of all activities and the need to focus on higher risk activities with a greater likelihood of non-compliance.

To assist industry in understanding NOPSEMA’s new approach a draft inspection policy has been published for comment.

The policy sets out a baseline, or minimum frequency for inspections. It also lists a variety of risk-factors that will drive more frequent inspections, such as the complexity of the activity and the stage of life of the asset.

Interested stakeholders are strongly encouraged to review the policy and provide feedback by Tuesday, 26 October 2021.
