In 2010 the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) introduced the Offshore Vessel Inspection Database (OVID), which is an Inspection Regime for Offshore Vessels similar to the SIRE Inspection Regime for tank ships. For more information please read this article.
In the OVID programme offshore vessels are vetted against OCIMF's Offshore Vessel Inspection Questionnaire (OVIQ).
To have good OVID records are important for Off-Shore vessels. Many OVID observations can be avoided by good preparations. To have an external entity visting the vessel for a pre-inspection a couple of days before an OVID inspection is often a very profitable investment.
MariTrain can visit the vessel a few days before the inspection in order to prepare the vessel for the upcoming external inspection.
