OISD (Oil Industry Safety Directorate) is a technical directorate under the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas that formulates and coordinates the implementation of a series of self-regulatory measures aimed at enhancing the safety in the Oil & Gas industry in India.

Objective of OISD –

  1. To formulate and standardize procedures and guidelines in the areas of design, operation, and maintenance as also the creation of new assets with a view to achieving the highest safety standards in a cost-effective manner.
  2. To conduct audits to ensure compliance with such standards.
  3. To maintain continuous follow-up on compliance to OISD audit action points.
  4. To analyze & investigate incidents happening to the oil & gas industry to identify the root cause and formulate an action plan for.
