The new SIRE Inspection Questionnaire has been under development since 2002. It should be noted that this is an interim publication and, except in specific circumstances, does not contain references to the International Safety Guide for Tankers and Terminals (ISGOTT) (5th Edition) currently under development. The final publication of a series of new VIQs will be released with appropriate references to ISGOTT when ISGOTT is published.

In view of the significant legislation that has been either revised or introduced since publication of the 2nd edition of the VIQ in 2000, OCIMF is releasing this interim VIQ to provide up-to-date questions and guidance to assist SIRE accredited inspectors in the conduct of their inspections. Inspectors and other SIRE programme participants will be informed when the final version of this 3rd edition of the VIQ is published.
