Why Choose this Training Course

This tanker vetting training course is a 2-day training. Launched in 1993, the OCIMF Ship Inspection Report Programme (SIRE) has governed over 180,000 inspection reports. As a result, SIRE has made a significant contribution to improving the overall safety record of the maritime industry. As the industry continues to evolve, its risk profile changes. More sophisticated risk measurement and management tools are now available. Against this background, it became the right time to strengthen SIRE and ensure it remains truly effective in todays and future maritime environment.

Working with the industry, OCIMF has developed an enhanced and risk-based vessel inspection programme that will supersede the existing SIRE programme. SIRE 2.0 will provide more accurate information to enable OCIMF members and programme recipients to make judgements on the quality and the likely future performance of a vessel. In future SIRE 2.0 will encompass all of OCIMF’s inspection programmes. This includes OCIMF’s Barge Inspection Report programme (BIRE) and Offshore Vessel Inspection Database (OVID).

SIRE 2.0 is the latest version of the Ship Inspection Report Programme developed by the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF). It is a new way of conducting and reporting ship inspections that focuses more on the human factors and management aspects of ship operations.
