New: Vessels’ Practical Guide to Vetting – order your copy now

Formerly entitled Seafarers’ Guide to Vetting Inspections, this publication is the essential second-edition counterpart to INTERTANKO’s best-selling Guide to the Vetting Process. Vessels' Practical Guide to Vetting is aimed squarely at those at the coal-face of vetting inspections – the seafarers themselves.

Vessels' Practical Guide to Vetting is the result of an INTERTANKO Vetting Committee initiative and has been written for all Officers and crew on board to enable them to better understand the content and requirements of the SIRE Vessel Inspection Questionnaire (VIQ).

Steve Hardy, Chairman of INTERTANKO’s Vetting Committee adds:

“The Vetting Committee’s vision is that this publication provides a greater understanding of the requirements of the SIRE VIQ and thereby make shipboard preparation for inspections second nature to all officers and crew serving on board oil, chemical and gas tankers.

“This guidance perfectly complements the INTERTANKO Guide to the Vetting Process and I cannot stress enough the value that this will provide to those on board.

“This publication is an essential addition to the library of each tanker.”

Priced at US$150 for non-members and just US$75 for Members, this publication really is a must-have.
