If a remote inspection is booked on your vessel, one important part of the inspection process is for you as an operator to complete part of the the inspection questionnaire. This is a vital step in the remote inspection process as this questionnaire is then used by the inspector who will then complete their sections of the form based on their findings before the final report is produced.
Once an inspection booking is confirmed you should then receive a notification with the booking code for the inspection booking.
Once you have this you can got to the online editor page at https://editor.ocimf.org/ to begin completing the questionnaire. You should arrive at a page that gives you 2 options, please ensure that you use the button labelled "Access OVID OVIQ Editor"
At the next screen you will be prompted to login:
Please enter your usual OVID login credentials, this will then take you into the main editor login screen.
When you arrive at the editor screen you will see a "New Inspection" button in the menu bar in the top left hand side of the screen:
Once you click on this you will then be prompted to enter the booking code you have been provided with. Once you enter this you can then begin completing the questions that you will see on screen.
We would recommend that you complete the questions in one single session and then submit the questionnaire as soon as possible by using the submit button that should be available for you to use:
Please note that you should use the same computer for completion of this process and it cannot be accessed by multiple users on more than one computer at the same time. Please stick to a single user logging in, completing the form and submitting as soon as possible.
