An experienced team evaluates existing client integrity management systems, procedures and asset-specific information. Following this evaluation, a review is completed to benchmark existing processes against a best-practices framework, that has been developed on the basis of industry standards and guidance. This process aims to identify areas for improvement to ensure clients continue achieving goals related to safety, integrity management, compliance and reliability.
ROSEN's comprehensive AIMS services can support you as follows:
- Improving auditability
- Support towards asset management excellence
- Ensured system effectiveness
- Ongoing support for ISO 55000 accreditation
- Applicable onshore and offshore industry standards and guidelines: ASME B31.8S, API 1160, DNV-RP-F116, EN 16348, API 581/653/510, ISO55000 / BSI PAS 55
Asset integrity management systems (AIMS) bring all aspects of integrity together to ensure the protection of people, the environment and the operator from the consequences of failure. They also ensure compliance and optimize useful life. In close cooperation with the client, we develop a system around international standards and local requirements. Furthermore, we support its implementation and, ultimately, the required training and knowledge transfer.
System Implementation typically follows a two-staged approach:
1. Audit & Review
- Gap analysis / potential benchmarking
- Recommendations based on standards and guidelines
- ROSEN can offer operator compliance audits, legislation compliance audits, best-practices comparison to ensure system effectiveness and asset-specific audits (transmission pipelines, structures, pumping stations, flexibles, top-sides, facilities, etc.)
- Development of an integrity management manual and auditable processes
- Implementation of the integrity management program
- Comprehensive training and hands-on familiarization of client engineers
- Support on a long-term basis
Our consulting team consists of experienced individuals working in the fields of process safety, risk-informed decision-making and management system audit and evaluation.
Best practices comparison to ensure system effectiveness
- Review of international codes (e.g. ASME B31.8S, API 1160, DNV-RP-F116) to identify common processes
- Incorporation of quality (ISO 9001) and asset management (ISO 55000) philosophies
- Inclusion of technical and management control elements
