The testing and maintenance of survival craft presents much greater risks at offshore facilities, which operate in a fixed position exposed to open ocean environments, than onboard ships, which can relocate to a safer location. This information paper aims to drive improvements to current Life Saving Appliance design and safeguards, regulatory requirements, industry best practices and programmes.

It makes a case for change to the IMO, government marine regulatory authorities, industry partners and LSA Original Equipment Manufacturers to drive towards an agreed international standard that is fit for purpose for the design, maintenance, training, testing and operation of offshore facility survival craft.

This preliminary information paper is intended as a contribution to further work, culminating in a more detailed publication in parallel with a case for change submission to the IMO.
