New eCMID feature – Other document types

Published 23 July 2019

We are pleased to advise of a new feature in the IMCA eCMID database website, which allows vessel operators to upload additional documents that may be of interest to their clients, as part of a broader vessel assurance system.

This non-mandatory features includes the following categories:

Access to these additional documents is via the existing permission system, so operators will continue to grant or assign access on a vessel- or fleet-wide basis.

As only eCMID and eMISW reports require inspector accreditation, the distinction is made clearer by a new ‘AVI’ badge against those reports in the list of available documents:

To upload, edit or delete documents (vessel operator accounts only), navigate to My Organisation > Manage Vessels, then right-click on the vessel name and choose ‘Add Other Document’.  This will lead to an upload form – please note that the original filename will be shown in the document list, so you may wish to make a copy and name it appropriately prior to uploading.

To download or request access to a document (all account types), navigate to Vessel Access > Current or Request access.
