Audits and Inspections
MariTrain has CDI certified Inspectors and perform CDI Inspections in Europe. We also perform pre-CDI and Vetting Inspections.
We perform navigational audits and internal ISM and ISPS audits both onboard and ashore by Certified Auditors.
Pre OCIMF Vetting & Pre CDI inspections
The Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF), the Oil Companies association, introduced their Ship Inspection Report Programme (SIRE) in 1993. In the SIRE programme tank ships are vetted against OCIMF's Vessel Inspection Questionnaire (VIQ).
To have good vetting records are important for tank and chemical ships. Many observations can be avoided by good preparations. To have an external entity visiting the vessel for a pre-inspection a couple of days before a SIRE/CDI inspection is often a very profitable investment.
MariTrain offer such services.
MariTrain can also assist through the complete vetting process as Vetting Superintendents.
RSI (Responsible Shipping Initiative) Inspections
The Responsible Shipping Initiative (RSI) aims to promote responsible shipping, with regards to working conditions, health and safety, and the environment.
Conditions for vessels operating in the Baltic and North Sea need to be continually evaluated. In order to do so, RSI performs inspections of vessels chartered by its members.
RSI and its members understand that to achieve effective and sustainable impact, a collective effort is the most efficient approach.
All RSI inspections to be requested trough Responsible Shipping Initiative
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.
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 offer such services.
Chemical Distribution Institute (CDI) is a Chemical Industry Organization that was created to improve the safety and quality performance of bulk liquid shipping. Within their CDI-M scheme they provide annual inspections of chemical and liquid petroluem gas tankers.
Captain Eddie Janson is Accredited by Chemical Distribution Institute (CDI) as an Inspector of Chemical Ships.
All CDI inspections to be requested on the CDI website.
ISM Internal audits
The International Safety Management Code (ISM) require Shipping Companies to have procedures for conducting both internal and external audits to ensure the ship as well as the shore organisation is doing what is documented in the Safety Management System.
MariTrain offers certified and experienced ISM Lead Auditors available to perform ISM audits onboard ships as well as on Shipping Companies' shore organisation
ISPS internal audits
The International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) require Shipping Companies to have procedures for conducting both internal and external audits to ensure the ship is doing what is documented in the Ship Security Plan.
MariTrain offers experienced Internal Auditors available to perform ISPS audits onboard ships.
The CDI's chemical participants has identified 23 Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) for CDI audit purposes, which will enable the CDI members to initiate risk mitigation steps commensurate with the risk associated to the specific cargo they move in ocean containers whilst meeting the chemical industries Responsible Care Requirements.
MariTrain can offer trained and certified CDI/KPI auditors.
Manning Agent Audits
MariTrain can assist as a third party auditor to audit manning agencies in accordance with TMSA, OVMSA the ISM code and to the principals own requirements.
Navigational Audits is a tool to increase the navigational safety standards in a shipping company.
According to OCIMF TMSA element 5, the operator shall arrange independent navigational reviews to check the navigational competence.
A Navigational Audit is a systematic control of how the Ship Operator’s Navigational procedures are followed. The audit is not to be performed while the vessel is in port.
A Navigational Audit program starts with a discussion between the ship operator and the independent auditor what the outcome of the program should be. Issues that will be discussed can be how many percent of the fleet that will be audited yearly, how the follow up on any findings will be dealt with and the frequency of the audits. Ideally the outcome of the audits will be linked to the operators training program. The training can either take place in a simulator or been carried out onboard during the audits.
MariTrain's experienced and qualified Auditors have carried out Navigational Audits for a number of Ship Operators.
MariTrain has auditors accredited to perform audits for CDI`s International Marine Packed Cargo Audit Scheme (IMPCAS) for Container freight stations, Container terminals, Freight forwarders and Ship Agents.
The Common Marine Inspection Document (CMID) provides a standard format for inspection of offshore vessels. Its use helps promote safety and efficiency and can help reduce the number of repeat inspections on individual marine vessels.
The inspection should be planned and undertaken in liaison with the vessel owner and should be undertaken by a competent inspector. Vessel charterers and clients may consider the inspection report before commissioning any further inspections.
MariTrain AB can perform CDIM inspections world wide.
Green Bunkering (Grön Bunkring)
MariTrain is accredited by the Port of Gothenburg to perform inspections for Green Bunkering (Grön Bunkring).
