the IMCA eCMID database website, which allows vessel operators to upload additional documents that may be of interest to their clients, as part of a broader vessel assurance system. This non-mandatory features includes the following categories:
- Annual DP trial reports
- Failure modes and effects analyses (FMEAs)
- DESIGN (diving equipment inspections) and
- a catch-all ‘Other’ category.
Access to these additional documents is via the same permission system, so operators will continue to grant or assign access on a vessel- or fleet-wide basis.
As only eCMID and eMISW reports require accreditation, the distinction is made clear by an ‘AVI’ badge against those reports in the list of available documents:
To upload, edit or delete documents (vessel operator accounts only), navigate to My Organisation > Manage Vessels, then right-click on the vessel name and choose ‘Add Other Document’. This will lead to an upload form – please note that the original filename will be shown in the document list, so you may wish to make a copy and name it appropriately prior to uploading.
To download or request access to a document (all account types), navigate to Vessel Access > Current or Request access.
