The offshore industry has experienced significant changes in the regulation and control of oil and gas exploration and production. The move away from the prescriptive approach towards a goal-setting regime gives Duty Holders greater control and accountability over the safety management of operations. Whilst this approach encourages greater ownership of safety by Duty Holders and provides greater flexibility, it also places greater demands and responsibility for ongoing integrity management, particularly when operational life is extended beyond the original specification with the need to account for the ageing mechanisms. Therefore it is increasingly important to ensure that those responsible for integrity management have all the necessary competences for this task and that the Duty Holder provides the necessary system competence to support this activity. This paper examines the factors which influence competence throughout the life-cycle of Structural Integrity Management (SIM) activities, and provides a model that relates this to a systematic safety management context.
