• Tanker Vetting

    In the marine tanker industry, two inspection regimes are predominant SIRE and CDI. SIRE inspections are commissioned by oil companies that are members of the OCIMF (Oil Companies International Marine Forum), Reports of such inspections are maintained on the OCIMF database for members to access, providing them up to date inspection status of the vessel.

    The CDI (Chemical Distribution Institute) is an inspection regime designed for chemical and gas tankers, and the completed report provides a score for the inspected vessel. A higher score indicates a vessel compliant with industry standards. Oceanlane International Services has operations in Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Korea, India, Pakistan, UAE, the United States of America,The United Kingdom, Canada and Japan.
