Title:Standards for offshore helicopter landing areas
Description:This publication provides the criteria applied by the CAA in assessing the standards of offshore helicopter landing areas for worldwide use by helicopters registered in the United Kingdom.

This amendment is issued to address changes required within Chapters 7 & 8 to reflect current best practice in light of revisions to regulations and guidance, resulting from experience and research carried out within the wider aviation fuelling community. As well as addressing the need for standardisation of training and competency of personnel involved in offshore helideck activities and the fuel supply chain, the main body of changes centre around removal of Filter Monitor filtration elements from use and the alternative control measures required to allow their safe removal or replacement to eradicate the possibility of Super-Absorbent Polymer migration from refuelling equipment to aircraft.

In addition, having identified ground handling in the CAA Safety Plan as one of the ‘Significant Seven’ areas of risk for the UK Aviation sector, a working sub-group of the Ground Handling Operations Safety Team (GHOST), has sought to address the risks specific to the offshore environment. Appendix K is the main deliverable from the initiative, bringing standardisation to ground operations and dangerous goods procedures across the offshore helicopter operators, that allows them to discharge their legal responsibilities.
