A good ranking in the OCIMF/SIRE Database is an essential tool for independent owners of tanker vessels in order to ensure employment for their vessels.

A Pre-vetting Inspection can help minimising or even eliminating the risk of negative observations during a SIRE Vetting, thus maintaining a low observation score in the database.

During a Pre-vetting Inspection we visit the vessel and perform an in-depth inspection covering all areas on board in relation to the SIRE Vetting programme with special focus on the Vessel Inspection Questionnaire (VIQ) in order to prepare the vessel for an upcoming vetting.

Vetting Inspections are a snapshot evaluation of your operating procedures, implementation, and condition of the vessel and her equipment. It is crucial to keep your vessels prepared all the time for the vetting to maximize commercial opportunities.

We have especially designed ship inspections based on SIRE & CDI program and RightShip for Oil & Chemical Tankers or Bulk Carriers to evaluate the preparedness of the vessel for the upcoming vetting inspections. This service usually involves a 2 -days visit to the vessel, preferably during cargo discharging. We provide truly independent advice on potential gaps, risks and how to mitigate them.

Upon request we can also assist with Owner’s response following a SIRE Vetting with negative observations.
