In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and continuity, the Oil Companies and International Marine Forum (OCIMF) announced the suspension of all audits for the year 2020.

As OCIMF highlights, the pandemic continues to cause loss of life.

Therefore, OCIMF decided to suspend all SIRE (Cat-1 and Cat-3) audits, SIRE and OVID refresher courses and new-inspector courses for the year 2020.

Yet, the Forum will review the situation in June 2020 and assess whether the inspector courses can commence and will provide updates with any decision made.

As this will have an impact on a number of stakeholders, OCIMF is liaising with all those that may be affected and providing them with specific and relevant advice. This will include members, SIRE and OVID inspectors and SIRE Auditors.
