ONR research

ONR have published a new research strategy in September 2019 which states it will use research to support its independent regulatory decision making. The main objective of the strategy is to ensure that ONR's inspectors will form their regulatory judgements confidently and effectively using sound, up to date scientific and technical information. 

The Professional Leads for each of our specialisms have reviewed their specialist areas and developed a range of research proposals. These are listed in the Regulatory Research Register.
