Contractors are critical to the vast majority of oil and gas operations, IOGP’s own safety data shows how over the past 30 years there has been a growing trend for clients to increasingly use contractors.
In 2017 IOGP updated its guide for HSE management throughout a contract lifecycle (Report 423) to:
- align with IOGP 510 – Operating Management Systems Framework (2014);
- place further emphasis on the collaboration between clients and contractors, and their respective responsibilities – including subcontracting; and
- focus on risk management and assurance mechanisms.

In this section you’ll find materials that can help you with the implementation of IOGP 423. Although consistent with IOGP 423, these materials do not constitute IOGP guidance and are not intended to represent all phases of the contract.
