Marine Industry Standard Audit
ABL Group has extensive experience with industry-standard audits, 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 and when required by the relevant standards, we have the relevant specialist surveyors qualified to perform such audits.
Advice in all industry-standard 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 (Int. Safety Management), ISPS (International Ship and Port Facility Security Code), LOLER (Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations) and PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations).
ABL Group undertakes gap assessments for many clients before a formal inspection or when requirements change. This helps clients plan and prepare 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 (i.e. a vessel) concerned. On many occasions, particularly with ISM audits, the scope includes an 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.
