MOU between MAIB, HSE and MCA
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between MAIB, HSE and MCA to ensure effective coordination where duties overlap.
This document sets out how the Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) work together where their duties for health and safety enforcement and accident investigation overlap at the water margin, offshore and on inland waterways in and around the United Kingdom.
This MOU is underpinned by an Operational Working Agreement (OWA) that outlines the key and supporting principles to be adopted when selecting the lead organisation for health and safety enforcement and accident investigation. The OWA also provides example scenarios that identify the lead organisation in a range of work activities.
