The CDI Marine Scheme

Marine Scheme

CDI-M was created by the chemical industry to improve the safety and quality performance of bulk liquid shipping. CDI-M now provides annual inspection reports on the world fleet of chemical and liquid petroleum gas tankers, over 600 ship owners with 3000 ships participate in the scheme. The inspections are conducted by over 70 CDI-M Accredited inspectors located in ports around the world.

Costs and Charges

CDI-M makes charges for its service sufficient only to cover costs of its management and operations. Participating chemical companies, pay an annual subscription based on the number of ships they charter and a nominal access fee for each report taken from the database. There are no participation charges for ship owners.

Non-chemical companies

Non-Chemical companies with a legitimate interest in the operation and technical condition of a ship may apply to be a non-voting associate participant, allowing them electronic access to ship reports.

Port State Control

Ships having a CDI-M report on the active database are listed on EQUASIS (European Quality Shipping Information System). Port State Control Memoranda participating in EQUASIS may be granted access to extract statutory information from the ship inspection reports on the active database.
