This document replaces the 1996 edition, published jointly by the United Kingdom Offshore Operators Association (UKOOA) in September 1996. The revision was instigated by the cross-industry Installation Integrity Work Group, formed in 2004 by UKOOA and supported by the HSE, with the aim of securing improvement in the management of offshore installation integrity by development and promotion of industry good practices and suitable performance measures.

This edition reflects the most recent experiences of the industry, and its current and best practice, and is more user-friendly in order to encourage its wider use. It is featured as an industry-supporting document within the UKOOA/HSE Step Change for Safety initiatives, and forms part of the 2006 UKOOA Installation Integrity Tool Kit (SCE Management) where it links directly to its Key Performance Indicator # 2, Significant Verification Findings.

The Guidelines are intended to provide good practice in the identification, verification and management of Safety Critical Elements, and will assist in compliance with the Safety Case Regulation and the Design and Construction Regulations for the offshore oil and gas industry.

The new edition comprises a substantial re-write, and includes additional guidance in areas such as in-service management, design and construction, life extension, de-commissioning, change management, temporary equipment and provision of examples of experiences and good practice. Although the Guidelines are intended for the UK offshore oil and gas industry, they may be referred to within other industries as an example of good practice.
