In July 2020, IMCA launched the new, cross-platform eCMID Inspection App, available via any modern browser at  The app has been very well received, with feedback welcoming the simplified navigation and ease of use, as well as the ability to use Mac, iOS and Android devices for the first time.  Our thanks to those who have helped identify minor issues, which have been resolved promptly by our developers.

At its meeting earlier this month, the IMCA Marine eCMID Committee reviewed adoption of the new app, and agreed that the classic Windows application will be withdrawn at the end of 2020.  The following timeline will apply:

We strongly encourage all users to plan their move to the new eCMID Inspection App as soon as possible, and to provide us with feedback.  Extensive user guides have been developed, at, and the eCMID Helpdesk is available to support you via [email protected]

This change will enable funds to be targeted on new developments that will further improve the system for all users.  Later this year, the ‘manage vessel’ pages in the database website will be updated to improve the experience for vessel operators, and of all those searching for reports via the ‘vessel access’ pages.  Further news will follow by email, posted at and the eCMID AVI group on LinkedIn (operated by the IIMS Marine Surveying Academy).
