The IMCA CMID (Common Marine Inspection Document) provides a standard format for inspection of offshore vessels and small boats. Its use helps promote safety and efficiency and can help reduce the number of repeat inspections on individual marine vessels.
The inspection should be planned and undertaken in liaison with the vessel owner and should be undertaken by a competent inspector. Vessel charterers and clients may consider the inspection report before commissioning any further inspections. As a ‘living’ document, the CMID may be kept and updated onboard a vessel, thus reducing the time involved in an audit.
The CMID is regularly reviewed and updated in the light of regulatory and technical developments.
SMSS-group IMCA CMID and Small Boat Inspections can be undertaken Internationally.
