Surveys, Inspections & Audits

Surveys, Inspections & Audits

We undertake a wide range of surveys, inspections and audits in all parts of the world on behalf of many different industry interests. Clients include vessel owners and managers, charterers, flag state, brokers, banks and insurance parties. Assets assessed cover a wide variety of type, size and complexity.

Our role is part of the risk management process for an asset or operation; we concentrate our effort on the technical governance and operation expertise for a vessel, asset or operation and focus our service to a client’s need.

Service provision includes fit for purpose assessments (suitability), condition surveys, project specific assurance and industry standard audits such as IMCAs CMID & eCMID, OCIMFs, OVID (offshore vessel inspection database) and JH series. Periodical audits for DP systems and due diligence assessment of asset fleets form art of our service offering. LOC works with clients advising on the best solution for a particular task. This ranges from use of standard format templates and process to this fully tailored bespoke solution. Instructions are often for work on a specific vessel or facility, however we work with multiple vessels and entire fleets. Our wide international network of offices, manned with marine surveyors and inspectors enables a near-by service to vessels and facilities across the world.
