The Common Marine Inspection Document (CMID) provides a standard format for inspection of offshore vessels. Its use helps promote safety and efficiency and can help reduce the number of repeat inspections on individual marine vessels.

Our marine surveyors are members of IMCA and offer CMID surveys for all types of offshore vessels. We also work closely with inspectors accredited for the EBIS, and OCIMF (SIRE) programs.


In addition, we also undertake suitability surveys for all offshore vessel, both dynamically positioned and others. The survey is geared up to the clients specific requirements.
