INTERTANKO Vetting Inspection Feedback Form

The purpose of this guide is to assist a vessel’s staff to prepare both themselves and the vessel for a ship inspection.

 

The importance of consistently successful ship inspections cannot be understated, without these vessels will have extreme difficulties to trade.

 

Good and thorough preparations will not only show an Inspector the competency and professionalism of the crew, but also how well the vessel is managed.

 

This publication follows each chapter of the latest version of the SIRE Vessel Inspection Questionnaire (VIQ) and provides guidance on the responsibilities for each question in the VIQ. Each ship owner, ship management company/operator or technical manager, referred to from here on in this Guide as “the company” should, under their own Safety Management System (SMS), have their own allocations of such responsibilities on board.

 

Audited inspections

Ships’ staff must also understand that for SIRE Inspectors to maintain their accreditation, they are required to undergo an audited inspection, which is one observed/audited by a more senior SIRE Inspector. This will be explained during the opening meeting onboard. The Master should have been told to expect this by his company because the company is always asked if they will permit this during an inspection. It is incorrect to think this will result in many more observations being raised – this is simply not the case and statistical analysis clearly proves this. It should also be noted that if the SIRE Inspector being audited fails the inspection, the report will still be completed and issued by the senior auditing inspector. We, as INTERTANKO would hope and request individual companies to respect and allow such audits to be completed on their vessels.
