Course Objectives:


Understanding of the principles and objectives behind the vetting process.

The course shall provide ship operators with a means by which they can be efficiently prepared for vetting inspections and be able to demonstrate a strong and continuous commitment to safety and environmental excellence.


Since the seventh edition of the Vessel Inspection Questionnaires (VIQ) had been recently released by OCIMF, this Seminar is an added value detailing to the differences with the previous edition and moreover acting as gap analysis on that.




The 7th edition has undergone an extensive revision process which has brought the VIQ up to date with respect to changes in legislation and best practices. Non-relevant questions have been deleted and the overall set of questions has been reduced by up to 90 questions. Notably a new chapter (Chapter 7) has been developed to cover Maritime Security including Cyber Security. The section on Mooring (Chapter 9) has been significantly reviewed to incorporate the revisions and best practices that will be introduced in the Mooring Equipment Guidelines, Fourth Edition (MEG4).
