Number of Inspections
As of January 1st 2015, all OVID inspectors will be required to complete a minimum of 4 OVID inspections per year in order to retain
their accreditation – this requirement will increase in future years.
All OVID inspectors should present their ID card at the time of boarding a vessel for an inspection. If you lose or break your ID card, please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org to request a new one. Alternatively, you can login to the OVID website with your inspector account,
and request a replacement card from the Profile section.
