As part of the Vetting Committee's on-going initiative to achieve a good exchange of information and feedback from INTERTANKO members on the vetting work programme, the Committee is organising two vetting meetings in Asia this month (following the meeting in Singapore held last November).

The vetting meetings will be held in Hong Kong, China on 29 January, and in Tokyo on 31 January in conjunction with the Asian Regional Panel Meeting.  These meetings will be chaired by Capt Howard Snaith, INTERTANKO's Marine Manager.

The agenda will include i.a.:  presentation of SIRE data, update on Oil Majors’ vetting requirements, report on the feedback from Majors with regard to new vessel inspection requirements, presentation of the INTERTANKO revised vetting inspection feedback forms and vetting clauses, CDI issues, and Port State Control issues.

On the regional front, topics covered will include: vetting by the independent terminals in Singapore, under-keel clearance on deep draught vessels transiting the Straits of Malacca and Singapore, and the Singapore Marine Academy's Vetting Awareness Training Courses for non-SIRE personnel.
