In the North Sea, anyone appointed to work offshore is required to undertake a specific basic safety training programme. In addition, for emergency response functions, some personnel are required to undertake a specific specialised training programme and, on successful completion, certificates are issued. All certificates remain valid for a set period of time, after which, refresher training is required.

The guideline states the agreement on Mutual Recognition of Specialised Safety and Emergency Response Training and is accepted by the NOIAs TWG. A previous gap analysis of basic safety training has been carried out and a mutual agreement matrix has been published for that level of training. That basic safety training matrix is not included in this document. More information about the basic safety training matrix can be found on the respective National Associations website.
