  11. DRAFT - • Work in Progress COS Suggested Strategic Approach to Managing Risk Through 3rd Party Audits and Certification • Key Considerations • 1) All offshore facilities do not represent the same inherent risk: • Deepwater Risk > OCS Risk • Drilling Risk > Operating Risk • New Operations Risk > Mature Operations Risk • 2) The level of audit should match the level of risk: • Lower and moderate relative risk warrant 2 levels of audit control • Higher relative risk warrant 3 levels of audit control • Staging of audits should reflect risk; higher relative risk first • If resources are potentially limited then a process should be in place to assure those resources are focused on higher relative risk first • DRAFT - • Work in Progress 06/15/12

  17. COS Certification – How it Works • Step 1 – Establishing Audit Service Providers • An ASP (as an independent entity with no ties to the COS) implements a business model for creating and managing an audit team to provide 3rd party auditing services to industry. Audit team must be qualified and trained consistent with COS publications. • An ASP approaches COS/API for COS accreditation. • The ASP pays for the accreditation process and agrees to periodic oversight by COS. • The COS/API accredits Audit Service Provider(s (ASPs) and adds the ASP to the COS published list of accredited ASPs. • DRAFT - • Work in Progress 05/23/12

  18. COS Certification – How it Works • Step 2 – Linking Audit Service Providers with COS Members • A COS Member establishes a need for a 3rd party audit and utilizes the COS website to identify/validate potential audit service providers (ASP). • The COS Member selects an ASP and enters into a business agreement with the ASP to provide a 3rd party audit; the COS Member and ASP business contract includes language endorsed by the COS. • The ASP and COS Member agree to an “audit plan” consistent with COS protocols and publications. • The ASP provides the COS a courtesy notice such that the COS, at COS’ discretion, may provide oversight consistent with the accreditation process. • DRAFT - • Work in Progress 06/15/12

  19. COS Certification – How it Works • Step 3 – Performing the Audit and Closeout • The ASP performs a SEMS audit consistent with COS protocol. • The ASP, through the use of COS standard report, provides the COS Member Company a report that identifies SEMS gaps, and identifies which gaps must be closed out to “certify”. • The COS Member creates a gap(s) closure plan for review with the ASP. The ASP and COS Member agree to timing for gap(s) closure and which gaps closures must be validated by ASP. • The ASP also creates a recommendation on “good practices” that the COS Member may consider sharing with the COS. • DRAFT - • Work in Progress 06/15/12

  20. COS Certification – How it Works • Step 4 – Issuing Certificates • Upon closeout of audit gaps, the ASP issues the standard COS report to the COS, and • The ASP issues a dated COS Certificate. • Step 5 – COS Member Company Follow-Up • The COS Member Company, at their own discretion, shares “better practices” with the COS (or allows the ASP to do so in their behalf). • The COS Member Company, consistent with COS Membership Agreement, maintains their SEMS program, and seeks out recertification within 3yr period. • DRAFT - • Work in Progress 06/15/12

  21. Assuring Team Competency Start Do individual team members meet requirements established in Section x.x (see slide # 22 for summary) Select different individuals and revalidate competency against Section x.x No Yes Select different Team Lead and revalidate competency against Section x.x Does Team Lead meet requirements established in Section x.x (see slide # 24 for summary) No Yes Add additional and/or select different team members and revalidate competency against Section x.x Does whole audit team meet requirements established in Section x.x (see slide #26 for summary) No Yes Audit may proceed • DRAFT - • Work in Progress 06/15/12

  22. Audit Team Member Competency COS-1-03 • Audit Team members shall meet the following minimum qualification requirements: • Two (2) yrs. offshore oil and gas (or related industry) experience, • Evaluated by either the Audit Service Provider (ASP) through the ASPs documented process or by a recognized auditor Certification Body (i.e., BEAC) • Completed a 24 hour training program that meets the applicable requirements outlined in COS-1-04, and includes three (3) hours of examination and/or skills evaluation. • Technical competency of the audit team may be supplemented by use of Technical Experts with the following qualifications: • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience, • Five (5) years experience in oil and gas (or related industry), and • Five (5) years experience specifically in the area of their expertise. • If a Technical Expert is designated as an audit team member, then that Technical Expert must meet the expected requirements for audit team members. • DRAFT - • Work in Progress 06/15/12

  23. Quality Assurance for Auditor Designation Audit Service Provider Note: An Audit Service Provider may also be a certified training provider. Provides COS endorsed SEMS auditor training and evaluation Checks certification, training, and qualification as SEMS auditor Auditor(s) Certified Training Provider • DRAFT - • Work in Progress 06/15/12

  24. Audit Team Lead Competency In addition to meeting the qualifications outlined for an audit team member, lead auditors will have: • Been certified by an auditor Certification Body (i.e., BEAC, RAB-QSA, IRCA, etc.) as a management system auditor, • Participated in at least three (3) audits in the past three years, • Participated full time in at least one (1) audit as either a lead auditor or a lead-auditor-in-training, • A minimum five (5) yrs. offshore oil and gas (or related) experience within the last 8 years, • Completed an additional eight (8) hrs. lead auditor training class that includes one (1) hour on professional ethics, and one (1) hour of examination and/or skills evaluation. • DRAFT - • Work in Progress 06/15/12

  26. Audit Team Collective Competency • Audit teams must have a joint competency that reflects: • Five (5) yrs. experience in development and implementation of HSE management systems, • Five (5) yrs. experience with MOC, HRAs, offshore procedures, process safety, and mechanical integrity, • Two (2) yrs. experience with interpretation and application of 30 CFR Part 250/RP 75, • Specific knowledge and understanding of COS RP75 SEMS audit protocols, and • Specific knowledge and experience related to operation of the facility. • Collective competency may be achieved by either a single individual or the combined competency of multiple individuals. • For full scale SEMS program certification, audit teams must have as a minimum of one (1) Audit Team Leader that meets the audit team lead qualifications plus two (2) additional auditors that meet the audit team member qualifications. • Validation of individual facility compliance with a company’s SEMS program will be performed as agreed to between the ASP and the company. • DRAFT - • Work in Progress 06/15/12

  27. Additional Key Points The ASP is responsible for selecting, qualifying, and appointing audit team members and, if necessary, technical experts to assure audit team competence leads to a high quality audit. The audit team, as a whole, must either have the required collective competency to assess the technical challenges of the facility being audited, or must supplement the audit team with qualified technical experts. Specific roles and responsibilities of the audit team members must be documented and cross checked. ASPs must have a documented process in place for periodically evaluating the performance of both audit team leaders and audit team members. ASP’s are responsible for assuring audit team leaders are maintaining competency. In addition to the training outlined in COS-1-01, each member of the audit team must have safety related training (i.e., HUET, TWIC, etc.) required by the offshore facilities being visited. The COS reserves the right to periodically, at COS’s discretion, audit ASP processes and auditor(s) competency. • DRAFT - • Work in Progress 06/15/12
