IMCA guidelines recommend the following DP Incident Investigation events:

  • DP incident – loss of automatic control, loss of position or any incident which has resulted in or should have resulted in a red alert
  • DP undesired event – loss of position or other event which is unexpected /uncontrolled and has resulted in or should have resulted in a yellow alert 
  • DP downtime – position keeping problem or loss of redundancy which would not warrant either a red or yellow alert, however loss of confidence has resulted in a stand down from operational status for investigation, rectifications, trials etc.
