In less than two decades the vessel vetting process has completely changed the oil shipping market. Almost all trading operators around the world have adopted vetting as a pre-selection process for vessels offered for chartering by measuring their compliance with Minimum Marine Safety Criteria. Vetting now involves not only oil and chemical tankers and LPG/LNG carriers but also Dry Bulk, Container vessels, etc. and includes comprehensive ship operators Safety Management System assessment via TMSA audits.

Moreover, the process is developing fast: SIRE 2.0 is a revolutionary approach to the traditional physical inspection concept with a greater use of technology and expected enhancement of quality of the technical report.

Understanding the various aspects of the vetting process is of paramount importance for all vessel operators to turn current constraints into business opportunities.

Following an overview of the business drivers for vetting and a dive into risk assessment, the vetting process itself is presented under different perspectives for a full comprehension of its objectives and how to achieve them. Vetting inspections, observations and findings and TMSA are analysed to give the key players, both onboard and ashore, the tools to prepare and proactively respond to the various issues related to vetting controls.
