The possible risks of negative findings during an OCIMF SIRE inspection are mitigated, or even cancelled by proper pre-vetting inspection. This helps to uphold a low observation grade in the SIRE database.
In the course of a pre-vetting inspection, we arrive at the vessel and carry out a comprehensive assessment of all sections aboard with reference to the SIRE vetting program, primarily focusing on the Vessel Inspection Questionnaire (VIQ) for the purpose of preparing the vessel container for a possible vetting. Our people-centred approach ensures a thorough understanding of the crew and officers. In the absence of this, a vetting inspection may attract disproving remarks.
Our major goal is the identification of possible defects which may possibly incur negative observation in the course of a SIRE inspection, depending on the inspector’s experience. In the process of inspection, the crew in charge of various departments aboard are ad-lib assistance to prepare them. Upon completion of the pre-vetting inspection, we provide the operator with a comprehensive report which includes possible solutions. The major aim is to find possible defects which may result in a disapproving remark during a SIRE inspection, depending on the inspector’s level of experience.
In the course of an inspection, the crew overseeing the numerous departments aboard are provided with ad-lib guidance to prepare them adequately. After the pre-vetting inspection is complete, the owner is presented with an extensive report including possible solutions. Prior to the inspector’s departure from the ship, a brief overview and recommendations are provided to the master. If the situation demands it, our experts can be present aboard to guide the crew, officers and master during the SIRE vetting.
