Re: IMCA CMID inspections
Most likely it will be Noble Denton. It will start with a review of all documents and how the vessel is complying to regulatory and industry requirements. It is a broad inspection regime and covers most everything. Something that will come up, is a "lifting appliance register". Most OSV do not have this, but the CMID requires documentation of slings and straps that may be only used for ship's business outside of the relationship with the client, but is required none the less.

There are no regulatory requirements to be a DP operator on a DP vessel in the GOM, but you may be scrutinized during a CMID.
