About OVID

OCIMF’s inspection protocol for offshore vessels has been successfully operating since 2009.

The Offshore Vessel Inspection Database (OVID) was developed in response to a request from OCIMF members to provide a database of offshore inspections broadly following the format of SIRE. Recognition that the offshore industry has different processes and procedures than the tanker world for assurance and chartering has been taken into account.

The aim of OVID is to provide a robust web based inspection tool and database of inspection reports; this will be underpinned with professional, trained and accredited inspectors. In the long term it is an aspiration that OVID will form a database that is central to the selection and assurance of offshore vessels enhancing the safety of operations in the industry.
