Accompanying Documents

This guidance document replaces the Supplementary Guidance on the RIDDOR Reporting of Hydrocarbon Releases issued in April 2014. The guidance sets out the means by which HCR may be assessed in terms of the requirement to report the release to the Offshore Safety Directive Regulator under RIDDOR and the EU Implementing Regulation.

Oil & Gas UK has developed an assessment tool which supports this guidance to enable reliable and consistent application of the methodologies used to set the reportable limits.

A presentation and more detailed technical presentation were developed to ensure consistent roll out of Issue 2 of this guidance. Following publication of Issue 3 an additional presentation has also been developed to outline the changes following the introduction of the EU Implementing Regulation.
