Authorised Vessel Inspectors (AVI’s) supplying the following vessel types:

  • Dynamic positioning (DP) vessels;
  • Pipelay vessels;
  • Cablelay vessels;
  • General vessels including heavy lift vessels.

The Common Marine Inspection Document (IMCA M149), originally published in print form in 1998, is the basis for the modern eCMID inspection.

Used as a basis for inspecting any type of vessel of 500grt and more and/or 24m or more in length.

Accredited vessel inpectors (AVI’s) with relevant eCMID endorsements are required to perform the above surveys.

Marine Inspection of Small Workboats

Marine Inspection of Small Workboats

Authorised Vessel Inspectors (AVI’s) are required for the common Marine Inspection of Small Workboats (eMISW), a standard format for the inspection and auditing of offshore vessels.

The Marine Inspection for Small Workboats (IMCA M189) was added to the eCMID system as the eMISW in 2013. This document may be used as a basis for inspecting any vessel less than 500 gross tonnage and/or less than 24m.

Generally this inspection is designed for vessels who do not need to comply with the International Safety Management (ISM) or the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) code.
C Force Marine Ltd have surveyors on call to fulfil your survey needs.
