Offshore Medical
For UK waters, all assets are controlled by OGUK (formerly UKOOA).
From 1 Jan 2007 the duration of medicals was simplified to: irrespective of the age of the offshore person, renewals are necessary 2-yearly.

Individual Operators retain the right to request medical assessments more frequently.

For UK waters, only physicians who are approved by the United Kingdom Offshore Operators Association (OGUK - UKOOA) Health Advisory Committee should carry out the examination.

A UK offshore medical used to be simply UKOOA approved. These days UKOOA has been been re-badged to OGUK. Whether they have a medical advisory committee or not I don't know, but as long as the certificate is issued by a UKOOA or OGUK approved doctor then it will be valid.
