Following successful trial inspections, OCIMF can announce the countdown to the release of the production edition of SIRE 2.0 has begun.
here. In addition, the SIRE 2.0 integrator API is self-documenting and acts as its own test harness.he SIRE 2.0 WebAPI is available
Due to the significance of this change from VIQ7 to SIRE 2.0, OCIMF will not limit the notice to the standard 90-day window. The SIRE 2.0 integrator API is now available.
There are only minimal changes in this version of the SIRE 2.0 integrator API as most recent system extensions have had no impact upon the API.
Also in this release, the pre-existing inspection booking services have been updated to accommodate SIRE 2.0 inspection bookings and the associated compliance matrix for inspector selection.
The integration environment for the existing SIRE web services is available here and these changes are also detailed in the release notes.
The new vessel inspection regime, SIRE 2.0, will more accurately report on the quality of a vessel and its crew (on an ongoing basis) and indicate future likely performance, using enhanced tools, strengthened governance processes and more in-depth reporting outcomes, following a risk-based approach.
HOW TO PREPARE
To support industry in preparing for the transition to SIRE 2.0, OCIMF has published the following documentation:
- SIRE 2.0 to VIQ7 Comparative Analysis
- SIRE 2.0 Question Library Question Programming Attributes
- SIRE 2.0 Question Library Part 1 Chapters 1 to 7 & Part 2 Chapters 8 to 12

What is more, in an exclusive interview to SAFETY4SEA, Mr David Savage, who was responsible for the development and introduction of the SIRE Inspector Accreditation Programme back in 2000, shares his experience and outlines the key challenges associated with the new program which will incorporate the human element, marking a new era in the inspection program.
The most exciting and positive prospect with the new programme is that it is risk-based, comments Mr. Savage who expects the focus on human element with SIRE 2.0 to ensure inspectors are sensitive to all pressures onboard.
