This document introduces the Marine Terminal Management and Self Assessment (MTMSA) process which has been developed by OCIMF as a standardised tool for global application to assist terminal operators in the assessment of the effectiveness of their management systems for berth operations and the management of the ship/shore interface.

The MTMSA process offers a standard framework for terminal operators to assess and improve their management systems.

With the publication of MTMSA, the ‘Marine Terminal Baseline Criteria and Assessment Questionnaire’ has been superseded and removed from print.

Terminal operators are encouraged to submit the results of their self assessments online to OCIMF’s central database for distribution to recipients approved by the terminal operator. Although MTMSA is principally a self assessment tool, external verification of the assessment by existing and potential users of the terminal can provide benefit to the terminal operator.

Self assessment can be used by terminal operators to verify that their management systems are comprehensive and promote safety and environmental excellence, with the intention of minimising risk in the execution of their operations and providing the ability to measure and continuously improve their management systems.

This self assessment process encourages terminal operators to review performance by means of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that are detailed within the elements of this document. Analysis of this data will establish trends that can be used to effectively target resources on measures for managing and reducing risk.

Terminal operators may use their assessment results to develop a plan to continuously improve safety and environmental performance and transfer best practice across their operations through the consistent application of enhanced processes and procedures.

The adoption of a uniform format for the assessment may also, at the discretion of the submitting terminal, facilitate internal benchmarking of performance within organisations.

A fundamental element of effective safety management is risk assessment. The use of this Guide can assist terminal operators to demonstrate that risks have been identified, analysed and reduced to a level that is as low as reasonably practicable.

This document includes best practice guidance based on current international legislation and recognised industry guidelines and codes of practice. In addition, in the online version, supplementary information will be available via a ‘Help’ facility to assist users when completing the assessment.

Great Book Review by AN
Great reference book would recommend it for all terminals. (Posted on 08/04/2015)
The Marine Terminal Management and Self Assessment (MTMSA) best practice guide for terminal management, launched October 2012, is the second leg of the Oil Companies International Marine Forum’s (OCIMF) Marine Terminal Information System (MTIS). Review by Hazardous Cargo Bulletin
Terminals Oil companies believe the best way to improve the quality of terminal operations is through self-assessment. OCIMF’s new Marine Terminal Information System has taken another step forward with the launch of a best practice guide.
The Marine Terminal Management and Self Assessment (MTMSA) best practice guide for terminal management, launched October 2012, is the second leg of the Oil Companies International Marine Forum’s (OCIMF) Marine Terminal Information System (MTIS).
MTMSA, which supersedes the Marine Terminal Baseline Criteria and Assessment Questionnaire, is the latest in a series of OCIMF self-assessment tools, joining the Offshore Vessel Management and Self Assessment (OVMSA) in the series of publications sharing the common objective of providing a means to assess the effectiveness of management systems. Robert Atkins, chairman of OCIMF’s MTMSA working group, believes that the launch of the document represents a “significant milestone in the MTIS journey towards improving marine terminal standards”. The MTMSA provides the industry with a uniform structure recognised by all oil majors for self-assessment of terminal activity.
“We see this is a win-win situation for all parties, as industry fully supports the standardised format”, Atkins says. “The adoption of a uniform format for the assessment may also, at the discretion of the submitting terminal, facilitate internal benchmarking of performance within organisations”
Anuj Gupta, secretary of the MTMSA Working Group and nautical advisor at OCIMF, adds: “MTMSA is a standardised tool for global application to assist terminal operators in the assessment of the effectiveness of their management systems for berth operations and the management of ship/shore interface. “Self-assessment can be used by terminal operators to verify that their management systems are comprehensive and promote safety and environmental excellence, with the intention of minimising risk in the execution of their operations and providing the ability to measure and continuously improve their management systems”, Gupta adds.
David Cotterell, director of OCIMF, says “This self-assessment process encourages terminal operators to review performance by means of key performance indicators (KPIs) that are detailed within the elements of this document. Analysis of this data will establish trends that can be used to target resources on priority areas. A fundamental element of effective safety management is risk assessment. The use of this Guide can assist terminal operators to demonstrate that risks have been identified, analysed and reduced to a level that is reasonably practicable.”

The Marine Terminal Management and Self Assessment (MTMSA) process has been developed by OCIMF, the oil companies’ forum, as a standardised tool to assist terminal operators in assessing how well their berthing operations are being managed and offers a framework for improving management systems. It supersedes the Marine Terminal Baseline Criteria and Assessment Questionnaire.
