To ensure programmes keep pace with industry change, in 2017, OCIMF established a Vessel Inspection Programme (VIP) Steering Group and convened specialist Working Groups to review and improve upon OCIMFs Ship Inspection Report Programme (SIRE) tanker risk assessment tool.
Working with the industry, OCIMF’s Vessel Inspection Project team are developing an enhanced and risk-based vessel inspection programme (SIRE 2.0) that will supersede the existing SIRE programme. The new regime will provide more accurate information to enable OCIMF members and programme recipients to make better judgements on the quality and the likely future performance of a vessel.
Please find below the SIRE 2.0 updates on the role of inspectors and on reporting. The overview and inspections factsheets were shared in July, and are available on the OCIMF website.
