Industry Standard Audit

Industry Standard Audit

We have extensive experience with many standard formats including CMID (Common Marine Inspection Document), eCMID (main and small boats, ROVs, Dive systems), MISW, OVID (Offshore Vessel Inspection Database), MSF (Marine Safety Forum) and insurance industry JH series. Where required by the relevant standards, personnel are qualified to perform such audits.

Our auditors are familiar with industry standards and the basis for assessment of systems and assets. These include but are not limited to ISM (International Safety Management), ISPS (International Ship and Port Facility Security code), LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations) and PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations).

LOC undertakes gap assessments for many clients, including before a formal inspection or when requirements change. This helps clients in their planning and preparation of systems and staff for the main compliance audit and should help reduce or eliminate the number and severity of deviations recorded. The audit location is normally the asset (ie a vessel) concerned. On many occasions, particularly with ISM audits, the scope includes audit of the asset owner’s or manager’s office and personnel (the headquarters and local entity if operating remotely of the headquarters). This ensures the whole system is captured in the audit frame and provides the client with good evidence of its due diligence.
