It’s great to see that the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) has undertaken its ambitious project of reviewing every guidance document in their extensive library, ensuring all are fully up-to-date. Work on the project, which started in January 2016, will be completed in the first quarter of this year. The IMCA guidance documents provide an invaluable library of information. Over 200 guidance documents cover everything that you might need to know about the marine contracting industry. It’s worth visiting the IMCA site and considering becoming a member.
We here at CheckIt would recommend IMCA guidance documents are used together with ‘CheckIt’… Checkit is the ideal tool to match with the guidance documents and checklists. Checkit allows for data entry from paper using optical character recognition (OCR) technology, browser or the Checkit app for smartphones and tablets. Checkit has an action management tool for tracking and closure of corrective actions identified in the inspection process. With Checkit there is no manual data entry and your inspection data is instantly available online for the management and reporting of performance across your business…. and what’s more, CheckIt is guaranteed to reduce your audit and management costs.
For those who don’t know, all IMCA guidance documents can be downloaded free of charge by members from the IMCA website and can be purchased by non-members.
