THE eCMID SYSTEM

Wave_edited.png

The eCMID (electronic Common Marine Inspection Document) system is the marine industry’s leading marine safety inspection system.

Built for the 21st century, with years of knowledge and experience incorporated into the question sets, the eCMID system is aligned to the International Safety Management (ISM) Code for Ships and follows the principles of ISO 19011 Guidance for the auditing of management systems.

Administered entirely electronically from inspection to report, the system sits on a secure database accessible wherever you have web access, for report download and review, and fleet trending analysis.

Inspections are carried out only by Accredited Vessel Inspectors (AVI), who are vetted, up to date and experienced.  They are independently certified by the International Institute of Marine Surveyors (IIMS) who verify and validate certification of AVI on a regular basis. 

There are currently over 350 AVI located in 39 countries worldwide, ensuring a large global coverage for your inspection requirements.

Offshore Projects:

Managing your marine spread for upcoming project execution offshore is a complex business. One item you may have to manage as part of that is a series of inspections as part of the Marine Assurance process.


eCMID/eMISW are very commonly accepted marine inspections that are accepted by offshore and other clients around the world, often instead of or alongside an OCIMF OVID.

All you need to do is give us the basic information, and we will manage that task from start to finish.  In the end you have one vendor and one contract.
