The current version of NORSOK D-002 was published January 2020. To ensure that the standard holds sufficient quality, it is important to assess the need for revision on a regular basis. Standards Norway is now requesting feedback from users of the standard, on whether it should be confirmed for another five years, if it should be revised, or if it should be withdrawn from the market. 

This PDF shows the standard's table of contents, scope and normative references 

If the conclusion is to revise the standard, input from users on areas that need corrections, additions, or revisions are highly valuable, as well as nominations of experts from the industry that are interested in participating in the revision team.

The standard defines what is considered typical and ordinary well intervention equipment. New equipment, special operations and operations in certain environments may require additional requirements and specifications. These specific additions are excluded from the standard and should be addressed in the risk assessment of the specific job.
