This publication aims to raise awareness amongst subsea engineers and non-specialists across the industry on good integrity management practices for SPCSs and its associated subsystems and components. It describes how asset owners or stakeholders can plan and execute integrity management activities for SPCSs, and is intended to be used by those in the oil and gas industries.

The guidance provides good practices to satisfy any regulatory and stakeholder’s requirements for effective management of the integrity of SPCSs through design, manufacture, installation, operation, maintenance and decommissioning. It is designed to enable the integration of the SPCS integrity management system with other existing management systems such as Coabis, and outlines key criteria for developing a robust integrity management strategy for SPCSs.

The design, implementation, monitoring and continuous improvement of a subsea asset integrity management programme is recommended to ensure subsea production control systems (SPCS) function, operated and maintained in accordance with the required design and operating performance standard throughout their whole life cycle.

The guidance is applicable to the integrity management of both topside and subsea-located production control system equipment on all installations.
