OCIMF is pleased to announce the launch of a remote inspection regime as an additional tool within its Ship Inspection Report (SIRE) programme.
The selection and use of Remote Inspections are entirely voluntary and remains the prerogative of the Submitting Company and Programme Recipient. Physical inspections will continue to remain an option subject to travel restrictions and other national and international health and safety guidance.
OCIMF will continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 and depending on the results may choose to extend the Remote Inspection regime or remove it completely.
The following documents are attached:
A factsheet on Remote Inspections under the SIRE programme: Remote Inspections Under the SIRE Programme
Guidelines for Remote Inspections under OCIMF programmes: Guidelines for Remote Inspections Under OCIMF Programmes
This announcement only applies to the SIRE programme. Remote inspections for the Offshore Vessel Inspection Database (OVID) are currently under review and will be the subject of a future announcement.
