After EU Member States have implemented the Offshore Safety Directive, the Commission continues supporting them in ensuring safe offshore oil and gas operations. The Commission organises meetings of the European Offshore Authorities Group, operates a virtual centre of expertise (VICOS) and publishes annual reports based on applications called SPIROS and SyRIO. Further work areas are the assessment of external emergency plans, support to cross-border co-operation between Member States and the decommissioning of offshore installations. For these tasks (non-exhaustive list) the Directorate-General for Energy (DG ENER) seeks advice from an external expert.
