This is COS' Portal for organizations that are accredited or that wish to become accredited as Audit Service Providers (ASP) by the Center for Offshore Safety. To start the application process, a responsible party from the organization needs to register and create an account. COS will verify the organization's interest in becoming an ASP, after which the organization will have access to the Portal. Organizations must sign the COS-ASP Agreement, at which time the Applicant may begin completing the application.
Some persons erroneously enter this Portal and begin the application process believing it will lead to individual certification as a SEMS Auditor or SEMS Audit Team Leader. This is not the case - there is currently no recognized certification for SEMS Auditors.
