This Safety Directive/Operational Directive replaces and revokes SD 2019/002 and is made in the interests of safety of operations to offshore locations (helidecks) for the reasons set out in Chapters 10 and 14 of CAP 1145. Additionally, it is made in further response to the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) Safety Recommendations 2003-133 and 135 issued following the accident to Eurocopter AS332L Super Puma G-BKZE at the West Navion drillship on 10 November 2001, and Safety Recommendation (SR) 2011-053 issued following the accident to Eurocopter EC225 LP Super Puma, G-REDU, when approaching the ETAP Central Production Facility platform on 18 February 2009. This SD incorporates updated references to CAP 437 and minor textual edits together with new requirement for Helideck Monitoring Systems.
