This Intervention at the Rolls Royce Marine Power Operations Limited (RRMPOL) licensed site was undertaken as part of the 2017/18 intervention plan and propulsion sub-programme strategy.
This inspection considered RRMPOL's licence condition (LC) 14 (Safety Documentation) compliance arrangements. The inspection was carried out using ONR's technical inspection guide NS-INSP-GD-014 Revision 3. An inspection plan (Trim Ref. 2017/329795) was provided to RRMPOL ahead of the meeting.
The LC14 compliance inspection comprised a review of the documented arrangements and examination of a sample of RRMPOL safety documentation.
The LC14 compliance inspection found that:
In general, RRMPOL's LC14 arrangements appear to be well documented and well understood. RRMPOL demonstrated good control over the live safety case and a positive level of interaction between the safety case authors and the end user. The LC14 Compliance Inspection was therefore given a green rating.
I found potential minor shortfalls with regards to safety case ownership, the linking between implementation documentation and the higher level safety case, and categorisation of modifications to safety case. I have raised Level 4 Issue 5709 to capture the minor shortfalls observed during this intervention and will track this to completion as part of normal regulatory business.
