IMCA has published new versions of its eCMID and eMISW vessel inspection templates.
Over 1400 vessels world-wide are currently covered by a live inspection report, providing a safety management system health check for both operators and clients. The inspection templates are reviewed and updated at least annually to reflect technological progress and regulatory developments, plus feedback received from the active community of vessel operators, inspectors and other stakeholders.
New supplements for battery and hybrid propulsion systems
Two new optional supplements have been introduced to each template for selection by the inspector for relevant vessel types. Featuring similar questions but tailored to each use case, they cover hybrid battery systems for dynamically positioned (DP) vessels and battery propulsion systems for non-DP vessels.
Updated requirements for vessel data
In March this year, IMCA launched the new eCMID Analytics Hub for vessel inspection data. The hub provides real-time reports on safety findings from current inspection reports, enabling wider trends and common risks to be identified and acted upon by vessel operators, inspectors and through IMCA’s committees and guidance documentation.
