Overview of Dive System Assurance Process (DSAP)

The DSAP has been designed to tune into the functional safety lifecycle model outlined in the Functional Safety Standard IEC61508. Checklists have been prepared to guide the vessel owner through a systematic management process to assure the safety of automated systems used on commercial diving vessels. The DSAP is currently being piloted by Shell and Safewell are assisting in the pilot study.
