MTIS is open to anyone involved in terminal operations and management, and users of terminal services, who have a requirement to view terminal details, including oil companies, shipping agents, shipping companies, charterers, vetting departments and port authorities.

You will need a computer (or means of accessing the internet) and an active internet connection.

If you are attempting to join an existing MITS account, you will need an invitation to join the organisation’s account from the Organisation Supervisor

Visit the MTIS website at and click on Register.

If you have received an invite to join an existing MTIS organisation account, follow the instruction included with your invite.

Usually, an MTIS application is processed with 24 hours of OCIMF receiving it. However, occasionally, due to busy periods and verification checks, it could take up to 5 working days to process an application. 

If you have not heard back from OCIMF within 5 working days, please contact us via email:

For security purposes, OCIMF will verify your application to confirm identify in aid of fraud prevention and misinformation.

The application verification process will also allow us to check that the company registering under does not already hold an MTIS account, thereby helping to eliminate the chances of duplicate data.
