Offshore potable water supply
Offshore units such as platforms, drilling ships and pipeline-laying vessels operating under Norwegian jurisdiction are required to have a potable water system and potable water supply in accordance with Norwegian regulations. The County Governor of Rogaland is authority for all offshore units operating in Norwegian waters, and the Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA) is authority for mobile offshore units with Norwegian flag. From January 1st 2017 the NIPH no longer works for any of the authorities regarding offshore potable water supply.
