Surveys and Audits


Ensuring vessels are compliant and fit for purpose.

Marine and offshore owners and operators need compliance surveys and audits to meet the demands of both their clients and their insurers. Charterers, for example, want to make sure that assets are fit for purpose. Underwriters require confirmation of vessel condition to determine risk. Assets also need review prior to conversion to a floating offshore unit.

Through thorough compliance surveys and audits, BV Solutions M&O helps owners and operators confirm that their assets are both compliant and fit for purpose. We maintain strong relationships with charterers, vetting agencies, owners, operators and insurers to ensure that our service delivery meets these entities’ demands.

For assets undergoing life extension, we perform comprehensive studies to evaluate and demonstrate an asset’s potential to operate beyond its design life, whether for marine or offshore assets.

We inspect vessels to verify their compliance with the 360 Quality Code. As a typical service survey, these inspections may be requested if a reefer vessel wants to be chartered to carry reefer cargoes.
