The transportation of crude oil, oil products, chemicals and liquefied gas by tankers and the transfer of cargoes with terminals inshore, onshore and offshore is inherently associated with risk. Over five decades, OCIMF has developed a wide range of best practice guidance to reduce risk in the movement and storage of these complex liquids.

OCIMF’s resource materials are developed to provide evidence-based technical guidance developed by industry experts in order to improve the safety of operations. Publications are developed to respond to specific areas of risk or concern, or to provide new guidance on emerging issues. Many of OCIMF’s publications are developed in association with other relevant industry organisations and in collaboration with representatives from across the marine industry.


The Barge Inspection Report Programme (BIRE) is a barge and inland coastal vessel inspection regime aligned to OCIMF’s Ship Inspection Report Programme (SIRE) providing the marine industry with a comprehensive and standardised vessel risk assessment tool and vessel inspection report database.
