eCMID 11, eMISW 4 and new user resources

Posted on

IMCA is pleased to announce the availability of an updated suite of eCMID question sets and other related materials:

  • eCMID/eMISW question setsIssue 11 of the eCMID and issue 4 of the eMISW are now available.  Many thanks to all those who provided feedback during the recent consultation process – this has been used to further enhance the revisions, which include:
    • New questions on cyber security
    • A new eCMID section on the Maritime Labour Convention
    • An extra optional supplement to the eCMID, covering vessel reactivation after a period of lay-up
    • Removal of repeat or redundant questions
    • Updates to reflect regulatory and technological developments
    • Changes to watermarks to reinforce that only online reports are now recognised by IMCA.
  • Guidance on the IMCA eCMID system – IMCA M 167 has been fully rewritten to act as the single point of reference for official IMCA policy and guidance on the inspection process and use of reports.  The previously separate explanatory texts from the eCMID and eMISW have been moved to this document, while ‘how to’ user guides to the website and software have been removed.
  • Information and support website – IMCA has developed a new resource, providing a range of information on the eCMID system, including task-focused user guides and an archive of the latest system communications.

This will be further enhanced in the coming days and weeks as we add PDF downloads and YouTube videos to the user guides.

The new versions are all accessible via
