About trust and ICT
Trust is an important value in Norwegian society – and part of the foundation for the country’s safety regime in the petroleum industry.
The companies are responsible for taking care of HSE. We must be able to trust that they accept this responsibility, and that they do what they can to comply with the regulations and operate safely. That is the way the regime is structured.
Norway’s Auditor General has recently taken a closer look at the PSA’s supervisory practice, and concluded that we have been too trusting of the companies in certain cases.
It also found that the companies, for their part, have not shown the degree of responsibility required. In its report, the Auditor General emphasises the importance of a firmer and more vigorous supervision.
This issue of Dialogue explains how we are following up these criticisms. You can read about a firmer and clearer PSA, and find that a lot of what we are now saying and doing is closely related to the HSE White Paper approved last summer.
A closer look is also taken in these pages at ICT security, an issue now attracting much greater attention. What challenges do we see, and what does our commitment in this area involve?
