Offshore and onshore BOPs recertification and inspection

After the Macondo tragedy in 2010, API launched new and more stringent specifications related to the recertification of blow out preventers. RP-53 became SP-53. One of the restrictions was that only the OEM was responsible to do the work. I wonder if that is still apply, or does an API 16A certified shop have authorization to work on BOPs manufactured by the big ones i.e.: Cameron, Shaffer, T3, Axon, Integrated, Control Flow, etc. I appreciate your comments either here, or through my email: ogshelly@gmail.com   

I took this picture in Dos Bocas, Tabasco, Mexico:
