Applicability of UK CAA Safety Directive

The latest safety directive from the UK CAA is published here: http://www.caa.co.uk/docs/33/SafetyDirective2014002.pdf

According to the SD it is applicable to "All AOC Helicopter Operators Conducting Offshore Operations".
Does any of you know how the UK CAA plan to enforce this applicability after EASA HOFO regulation is implemented next year? According to CRD 2013-10, the new rule will replace all national regulation, and from my understanding it will also invalid this SD.

After the new regulation is implemented, operators from all EU states will be welcome to engage in UK offshore heli ops, and these will be under the oversight from the authority in their respective home states. I do not see how UK CAA can add any additional requirements like this in the future.
