LOC undertakes an extensive range of surveys, inspections and audits. While instructions are often for work on a specific vessel or facility, we also work with multiple vessels and even entire fleets. Due to our international network of offices, we can survey and inspect vessels and facilities anywhere in the world.

We survey vessels employed in the offshore energy industry using both IMCA’s Common Marine Inspection Document (CMID) and the OCIMF Offshore Vessel Inspection Document (OVID).
We carry out surveys to ascertain the overall condition of a vessel – hull, machinery, equipment, safety and security measures, management systems and certification are all inspected.
A due diligence survey is carried out on behalf of banks, finance houses, insurance companies and other third parties.
We perform thorough audits, inspections and trials of vessels fitted with dynamic positioning (DP) systems.
We use ultrasonic testing equipment to check the integrity of hatch covers and other hold fittings on bulk and general cargo ships.
We carry out audits and assessments of vessel management systems, including ISM and ISPS (International Safety Management Code and International Ship and Port Security).
We carry out surveys documenting the exact condition of a vessel, its machinery, equipment and consumables at the time it is taken on charter, and again when it is taken off charter.
LOC performs pre-purchase surveys to confirm that the condition of the vessel is as described.
