Our Memberships

IMCA - CMID Accredited Vessel Inspectors


From January 2018 the International Marine Contractors Association’s (IMCA) will recognize only formal inspection reports conducted using its  e CMID database, meaning that paper reports not uploaded into the database will no longer be considered by IMCA to be authorized inspection reports.

The whole e CMID system is now based on the principles described in the ISO 19011 Guidance for Auditing Management Systems standard and is aligned with other comparable industry guidance on safety management system assurance.

From the same date only validated Accredited Vessel Inspectors (AVI) will be able to use the ‘inspector role’ in the IMCA e CMID database to conduct authorised Common Marine Inspection Document –IMCA M149 and Marine Inspection for Small Workboats – IMCA M189) inspections.
