The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) has seen a marked increase in the use of its eCMID inspection scheme for offshore vessels that benefit from an independent International Safety Management health check. To manage the increase in use and enable enhancements to the eCMID website and software, IMCA is to introduce a nominal charge for each eCMID report uploaded by an AVI from 18 June 2018.
The International Marine Contractors Association’s (IMCA) Capt Andy Goldsmith, Technical Adviser – Marine, will be speaking on crucial aspects of Dynamic Positioning (DP) at the European DP Conference in London on 6 February. IMCA has been at the forefront of DP since it was first introduced to the offshore industry. Guidance and station keeping event reports provided by IMCA members are used throughout the industry.
From 1 January 2018, IMCA will only recognise formal inspection reports conducted using the eCMID database; and only those with Accredited Vessel Inspector (AVI) status will be able to undertake inspections in line with the Common Marine Inspection Document (IMCA M 149) and Marine Inspection for Small Workboats (CMID for Small Workboats – IMCA M 189).
IMCA, the influential international trade association representing offshore, marine and underwater engineering companies, is seeking a Technical Adviser specialising in dynamic positioning (DP) to join its secretariat, supporting and implementing IMCA’s wide-ranging work programme.
