The Common Marine Inspection Document (CMID) provides a standard format for inspection of offshore vessels.  Its use helps promote safety and efficiency and can help reduce the number of repeat inspections on individual marine vessels.

The inspection should be planned and undertaken in liaison with the vessel owner and should be undertaken by a competent inspector. Vessel charterers and clients may consider the inspection report  before commissioning any further inspections. As a 'living' document, the CMID may be kept and updated onboard a vessel, thus reducing the time involved in an audit.

The CMID is regularly reviewed and updated in the light of regulatory and technical developments. A major review of the CMID was undertaken in May 2011  by a cross-industry workgroup with input provided by contractors (vessel operators), charterers, consultants and other interested parties resulting in the release of issue 7. Since then issue 8, a further update, was published in 2011.
