Welcome to OVID

The Offshore Vessel Inspection Database (OVID) in response to a request from its members to provide a database of offshore inspections broadly following the format of SIRE; OCIMF’s inspection protocol for oil, chemical and gas tankers that has been successfully operating since 1998.

Recognition that the offshore industry has different processes and procedures than the tanker world for assurance and chartering has been taken into account.


IMPORTANT: OVIQ v2 and Modu Template Postponement

The planned release of the new OVID and Modu templates (OVIQv2, Modu-Jackup and Modu-Drillship) has been delayed. More information will follow in due course.
