Swire Blue Ocean (SBO) is proud to share that Pacific Osprey and Pacific Orca earned their best outcomes ever during the annual eCMID inspections. The vessels were inspected on 3 February and 2 March by a fully Accredited AVI Inspector from the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA). Both received excellent results across all categories with very few recommendations and were awarded a very positive comment highlighting “a very high level of maintenance and a strong safety management leadership”.
SBO self-regulates and adopts IMCA guidelines where appropriate. We commit to act as responsible members by following relevant guidelines and exhibiting willingness to be audited against other clients by IMCA.
These excellent outcomes are the result of constant preparation by the vessels management teams to ensure our vessels remain up to industry standards. The management on board our vessels work as a team to ensure that all sections of the CMID are all thoroughly reviewed prior to the commencement of the inspection and all systems are regularly inspected throughout the year, on a weekly or monthly basis.
“We are very happy about the successful eCMID inspections on both vessels. They demonstrate the high level of skills, professionalism and commitment of our crews onboard, as well as sufficient maintenance. It also shows that we have constantly been learning and improving over the years, keeping our HSE standards at the highest level,” says SBO QA Specialist, Charlotte Kempf.
Thank you to our teams on board Pacific Osprey and Pacific Orca for their continuous good work and commitment.

The IMCA eCMID system provides the marine and offshore industry with standardised formats for vessel inspection. It offers a safety management system (SMS) ‘health check’ and can help improve the quality and consistency of inspections, as well as reducing the frequency of inspections on individual vessels through the adoption of a commonly recognised inspection process.
