The audit was conducted on 21 March 2023.


The objective of the audit was to gain insight into the company's governing documents, internal requirements, processes and procedures related to certification and recertification of drilling BOPs with control systems. It was also important to verify that rolling five-year recertification is structured so as to ensure that all components are covered and that recertification can be documented at all times.


One non-conformity was identified concerning verification and regulatory compliance.

What happens next?

We have asked Archer to report to us by 25 May 2023 on how the non-conformity will be addressed.
