FOREWORD
Maritime risk – What is it and how do different organisations address risk? As a mariner and one who has been

involved in the marine transportation business for the past 40 years, I have had to address maritime risk through

different lenses and perspectives – as an individual on a ship, as part of the shipboard management team, as part of

the company’s management team ashore and as part of an oil major’s marine risk assurance team.

Maritime transport poses various risks in terms of safety of life, environmental pollution and loss of property. Readers

will agree that eliminating risk completely is difficult to achieve; however, it is the ever-demanding expectations of

society and our customers that we must satisfy. In response to these expectations, companies and organisations that

provide business to the marine transportation industry are increasingly sensitive to any form of risk. It is, therefore,

the ability of shipping companies to demonstrate that they are able to reduce or eliminate risk by using riskmanagement

techniques as part of their company quality and safety management systems that will make them

potential business partners.

Vetting is the process which the oil-majors, charterers and Port State authorities use to manage risk when assessing

a vessel. A successful “vetting” is, therefore, a vessel’s “ticket to trade”.

During my years in the maritime industry, I have in one way or another been involved with INTERTANKO and its

Vetting Committee – the entity that conceived and developed this invaluable guide for the industry.

INTERTANKO responds to many enquiries for up-to-date information on the different vetting and ship-inspection

requirements of oil and chemical companies, terminals, insurers and underwriters as well as for information pertaining

to the various Port State Control requirements. This Guide to the Vetting Process, compiled with the assistance

and support of the vetting departments of oil-companies, Port State authorities and the INTERTANKO Vetting

Committee, brings together the requirements of these stakeholders to provide our Members the information they

require. Continuous improvement is a key aspect of risk management and is one that INTERTANKO strives to meet.

Feedback is key to ensuring continuous improvement in any process and INTERTANKO has developed a number

of platforms to facilitate this. Its Vetting and Port State Control Inspection Feedback systems, as well as its Terminal

Vetting Database, are useful tools for the owner/operator and ship’s Master in ensuring fair ship inspections, as well

as for enhancing safety at ports and terminals. Also the development of the Incident Repository is another example

of the results of INTERTANKO’s close cooperation with OCIMF.

As Chairman of the Vetting Committee, I cannot understate the importance of understanding the risk-management

values and principles that are employed by the oil companies, charterers and Port State authorities. This guide, now

in its 12th Edition, will provide shore-based personnel a better understanding of these systems and will help them

comply with various vetting requirements.

Although the aim of this publication has been to assist INTERTANKO Members with information and guidance on

ship-inspections and vetting processes, it has become the “go-to” publication for the wider shipping industry. For

this edition, we have turned the section on Port State Control (Section 1) into a separate publication, which we feel

will be valuable for those dry bulk and container operators that may not need the guidance on vetting.

There are too many individuals and organisations to thank for their contributions and hard work to include here,

however, I would like to offer particular thanks to INTERTANKO’s Vetting Committee and its Secretariat.

I strongly recommend this as a standard publication in all office and ship libraries.
