eCMID Analysis: Inadequate Control On Confined Spaces Highlighted


A new report from IMCA has analysed 1,611 standard vessel inspection reports uploaded to IMCA’s eCMID (Common Marine Inspection Documents) and eMISW (Common Marine Inspection Documents for Small Workboats) database in the previous year.

The eCMID system provides the marine and offshore industry with standardised formats for vessel inspection. Offering a Safety Management System ‘health check’, it improves the quality and consistency of inspections, while reducing their frequency through the adoption of commonly recognised processes.

IMCA analysis found that in the last year:

  • 7% did not have a technical inspection by the vessel operator.
  • 9% did not adequately control enclosed space entry.
  • 12% did not inspect the pilot ladder before use.
  • 10% did not have procedures on the handling of chemicals and flammable materials.
  • 11% did not have cybersecurity measures in place.
  • 5% did not carry sufficient medical supplies on board.
