The audit was carried out from 6 to 9 November 2023, and also included follow-up of identified measures in the wake of previous incidents.


The objective of the audit was to assess how Equinor ensures compliance with regulatory requirements related to major accident prevention when establishing, designing and following up selected technical safety functions within process safety, as well as following up measures after selected incidents.


The audit identified three non-conformities, concerning:

  • Process safety
  • Non-conformity handling
  • Documentation

What happens now?

We have asked Equinor to report to us by 2 February 2024 on how the non-conformities will be addressed.
