CMID Inspections

CMID Inspections are carried out by DP & Marine Assurance Norway using Fully CMID Accredited Inspector (AVI).

The Common Marine Inspection Document (CMID) provides a standard format for inspection of offshore vessels, including large ships right down to smaller workboats. The purpose of this process is to provide a structure for the audit, or inspection of commercial vessels used in the offshore industry, conducted by vessel inspectors working on behalf of owners or clients. Use of CMID helps promote safety and efficiency and can help reduce the number of repeat inspections on individual marine vessels.

CMID Inspections carried out by DP & Marine Assurance Norway AS are planned and undertaken in liaison with the vessel owner and are undertaken by our CMID Accredited Vessel Inspector (AVI). Vessel charterers and clients may consider the inspection report  before commissioning any further inspections. As a ‘living’ document, the CMID Inspections may be kept and updated onboard a vessel, thus reducing the time involved in an audit.
