The SCCoP is an aspirational code of conduct and its signatories agree to work towards full compliance with the Code, however it is accepted that this may not be achievable by all signatories. The Code is designed to help its signatories to achieve the highest attainable standards of business ethics, health, safety and environmental operations in accordance with all relevant statutory, local and national legislative requirements.
SCCoP signatories include major purchasers (UKCS operators and principal contractors) and suppliers (companies providing goods or services). All signatories should be registered on FPAL which is the oil and gas supply chain database that allows oil and gas purchasers to identify, select and manage current and potential suppliers.
