Offshore Vessel Inspections (OVID)

All your maritime needs with

one maritime family

International Marine Experts (IME) inspectors are accredited by the Oil Companies International Forum (OCIMF) to perform OVID Inspections.

Offshore Vessel Inspection Database (OVID) is an inspection protocol that will allow project and marine assurance teams to assess the safety and environment performance of a vessel and its operators more effectively and uniformly. 

Also, it helps make an effective marine assurance process to overcome the weakness of traditional checklist inspection schemes.


Having good OVID records is essential for Off-Shore vessels. Many OVID observations can be avoided with good preparations. To have an external entity visiting the vessel for a pre-inspection a couple of days before an OVID inspection is often a highly profitable investment.

OVID may be scaled to include other inspection/audit types; inclusion of these will be subject to the oil company's needs. Inspections are tailored to the operations that the commissioning company is interested in.
