New Version Of Q88 Questionnaire Is Launched


INTERTANKO and Veson Nautical have announced they launched the Version 6 of the Q88 Questionnaire for tankers.

Improvement in the tankers

According to Veson, by improving the questionnaire format and standardising the data entry processes, charter parties can share common data requirements through one form. The aim is to facilitate faster trades, lessen repetitive tasks when a vessel is put up for hire, and move the industry forward on key issues.

With the transition to SIRE 2.0, and the adoption of new technology, the need was felt to modernise the questionnaire.

What is the Q88 Questionaire? 

It was developed by INTERTANKO and Q88 with the purpose of increasing safety standards and assessing a vessel’s suitability as part of a robust tanker vetting program. Now in its 6th version, Q88 is used by over 1,000 tanker owners, technical managers and charterers and brokers globally.

This data was not included in Version 5 of the Q88, meaning many charterers would have to make additional requests for Information (RFIs) to owners / managers, sometimes adding days to vetting requests and delaying fixtures.

Users of the Questionnaire 88 will now be asked to provide input on their vessel’s GHG performance data, scrubbers, ballast water treatment systems, energy and consumption ratings, and NoX emissions compliance data.

This revision is the work of a collaborative effort between the Q88 group at Veson Nautical and the INTERTANKO Vetting Committee, Q88 Working Group chaired by Captain Ashley Cooper, Group Marine Director, Scorpio Ship Management S.A.M.
