The audit was conducted from 1 to 28 November 2022.


The objective of the audit was to monitor that the management of maintenance, including the company’s own follow-up of ongoing changes that affect the management of maintenance, comply with the authorities’ and their own requirements. A further objective was to verify that efforts to improve the management of maintenance are ensuring that significant contributors to HSE risk are identified and followed up.


We identified three non-conformities during the audit. These concerned:

  • classification
  • maintenance programme
  • deficient planning and prioritisation

We also identified three improvement points. These concerned:

  • maintenance programme
  • knowledge of barriers
  • collection, processing and use of data

What happens next?

We have asked Aker BP to report to us by 27 February 2023 on how the non-conformities will be addressed, and to give us their assessment of the improvement points observed.
