Dolphin AS will not receive order as notified

On 4 June 2007 Dolphin AS (Dolphin) received a notification of order following an audit of the anchoring of Bideford Dolphin. On the basis of the company's measures and reply following the notification, there are no longer grounds for issuing the order as notified.


On the basis of verification of Dolphin's review of documentation in a meeting on 28 June 2007, we are of the opinion that the company has conducted a review of the documentation of the technical equipment in the anchoring systems on Bideford Dolphin and Borgland Dolphin.

We are also of the opinion that Dolphin has prepared a binding plan to bring the anchoring system in compliance with the regulations. The company has applied for and been granted a temporary exemption from Section 3 of the Framework Regulations.

There are therefore no longer grounds for issuing the order as notified.
