Certification and insurance of platforms has become a major issue within responsibilities of offshore Operators. In fact it is the safety and integrity condition of platform which leads to its certification by third parties. Integrity condition and resulting certification has a major impact on the insurance contract and the premium the Operator is to pay. More importantly, in the event of damage the first issue that insurance companies look into is integrity condition of the asset prior to storm. The judgement about this issue by the insurance company determines the amount of damage claim paid, if any. Therefore certification of platforms is utmost importance for Operator’s sustainable development and financial security.
