Changes to the minimum inspection requirement

Before applying for a Refresher course, please note changes to the minimum inspection requirement. The changes will be enforced from 31 December 2018.

Minimum inspection requirement for 2018/2019
To maintain accreditation, inspectors must submit a minimum number of reports to OVID each year. Inspectors who do not submit the minimum number of reports will have their accreditation temporarily withdrawn.

The minimum number of inspections required each year in 2018 and 2019 is (4) four.

Failure to meet the minimum inspection requirement
Any inspector who fails to submit the minimum number of inspections during the year will, on the 31 December of the same year, have their accreditation temporarily withdrawn.

Exceptions
Vetters
Inspectors who are direct employees of a submitting member as a vetter, i.e. who are normally involved with the day-to-day administration of a vetting department, will only need to submit a minimum of two inspections each year. The Vetting Manager (or equivalent position) in the submitting member company will be responsible for notifying the OCIMF Accreditation Administrator by email to designate or withdraw vetter status for that member’s direct employees.

Urgent inspection requests
Member companies who urgently need to use an inspector who has only submitted three inspections in the previous calendar year may request a temporary exception for that inspection. The member must submit supporting documentation to the OCIMF Technical Adviser (Offshore) for approval of this exception. The inspector will still need to attend a refresher training course to maintain accreditation (see below).

Regaining accreditation
Inspectors who have submitted three reports in the previous calendar year can regain accreditation by attending and successfully completing an inspector refresher course.

Inspectors who have submitted two or fewer (2,1,0) reports in the previous calendar year must be nominated by a submitting member, attend a three-day new inspector course and successfully pass the examinations for which re-accreditation is sought under the same procedures as applicable for an applicant inspector.

Inspectors who fail to be re-accredited within two years of the date their accreditation was temporarily withdrawn, but who wish to regain accreditation, must be nominated by a submitting member to attend a three-day applicant inspector’s course and successfully pass the examinations for which re-accreditation is sought under the same procedures as a new inspector course.
