We recommend that the Commonwealth Petroleum (Submerged Lands) (Management of Safety on Offshore Facilities) Regulations (MOSO) be amended to ensure that the safety case for a floating facility specifically identifies when command structure changes occur (which may be well before departing the site and associated zone). We also recommend that the OPGGS Act be amended so that a vessel becomes a facility when any part of it comes within 500 metres of the site and continues to be a facility until no part of the vessel remains within 500 metres of the site.
