eCMID Accredited Vessel Inspector Scheme
In 2015 the Marine Surveying Academy Ltd (MSA) was awarded the contract to develop and launch a formal accreditation scheme for those engaged in conducting Common Marine Inspection Document audits and inspections, known as eCMID. The scheme, launched in June 2015, has accredited over 600 eCMID inspectors and continues to grow steadily as vessel owners and operators of offshore assets increasingly insist on only allowing eCMID Accredited Vessel Inspectors on-board to conduct their audits.
