4.9Group Management Systems

As part of the Company-wide transformation over the past two years, a Global Entreprise Management System (GEMS) was developed and its implementation was completed in 2015. GEMS has been structured around three main process domains known as executive processes, core processes and support processes, with the core processes further modelled into the business areas of Win, Execute and Operate.

This structure allows an integrated end-to-end approach to all business activities of SBM Offshore and of the joint venture operating companies and a cohesive framework for Quality Assurance, Health and Safety, Security of Personnel and Assets, Protection of the environment as well as Risk and Opportunity Management throughout the whole product life cycle.

Group policies are developed to ensure the correct governance and guidance of SBM Offshore practice. These form the basis of the management system and its processes are correctly implemented throughout the Group as they apply to the Regional Centers, shore bases and vessels.
