IMCA Makes Change in CMID Concept of Operation

Richard Benzie

International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) intends to improve the integrity and quality of its common marine inspection document system (CMID) by adopting a greater degree of oversight of the system.

According to IMCA, this will enable greater cooperation with the offshore vessel inspection database (OVID).

The changes will be made to ensure that by January 2018 only accredited vessel inspectors (AVIs) are able to use the eCMID database and only eCMID reports, rather than paper versions, IMCA said.

IMCA’s technical adviser, Chris Baldwin, announced these changes at a workshop held at Seawork International 2016 in Southampton.

“We believe that these steps are necessary for this widely used vessel safety management system audit process, to ensure it keeps pace with current and future expectations of stakeholders in the offshore energy industry,” said IMCA’s technical director Richard Benzie.
