The audit was conducted from 20 to 28 June 2022.


The objective of the audit was to verify that new flexible risers are being designed and manufactured in compliance with the company’s own requirements and those of the regulations. There was a further objective of checking how the follow-up of suppliers and sub-contractors is ensured.


No non-conformities were identified.

Two improvement points were identified relating to:

  • Information
  • Follow-up of activities in the project

What happens next?

We have asked Equinor for an assessment of the improvement points observed. The reply deadline is set at 1 October 2022.
