I have been asked to reply on behalf of the Department for Transport.

The Civil Aviation Authority carried out a detailed review of offshore operations and standard operational procedures in February 2009 following an accident involving a Eurocopter EC 225 helicopter.

The CAA regularly reviews offshore operational practices and standard operational procedures as part of their Regulatory oversight and is also currently involved in assisting EASA in formulating the EASA-OPS rule set for offshore operations involved in the exploitation of Oil and Gas over hostile environments.
