Safety certification for offshore helidecks

An enhanced certification process involving more legally binding safety standards aims to raise safety levels for the over 300 helidecks in UK waters. This will give organisations accredited and overseen by the CAA the power to stop flights to helidecks that fail to meet the minimum standards.

The announcement is the latest move to improve offshore helicopted safety following our comprehensive review of offshore helicopter operations published in February 2014. To see the other actions we have already introduced, click here.
