This event will include sessions on:

In session 1, delegates will contribute to an IMCA information note on reactivation of DP vessels. Session 2 gives an opportunity to analyse recent DP station keeping events.  On day two, attention turns to accreditation. Session 3 will introduce the idea of a scheme to accredit DP assurance and DP trials practitioners. Session 4 is dedicated to the eCMID inspection scheme and its role in the vessel assurance process.
