SIRE’s HVPQ 4 now available

Please note that the Oil Companies International marine Forum (OCIMF) has advised us that the Harmonised Vessel Particular Questionnaire version 4 (HVPQ4) is now available and is being rolled out to users.


As a first step SIRE is prioritising those companies which have had problems with the older HPVQ programme, and will be switching over all other users in the next month. INTERTANKO members are advised that the older VPQ is still available and SIRE will advise shortly of its switch-off date.


Members wishing to activate the HPVQ 4 should contact Mr Geoff Snow by e-mail at
