Only accredited company for BVIQ

Our flagship Bulk Vessel Inspection Questionnaire (BVIQ) product is a standardised inspection tool for verifying the condition, operation and safety performance of vessels. This innovative digitised tool proactively identifies areas of improvement in a mutual strive towards ensuring maritime safety.

MER Solutions exclusively trains, accredits, coordinates customer service and quality of BVIQ inspections globally.

The aim of a BVIQ inspection is to deliver positive vetting. To find out more about BVIQ and the benefits for ship operators, charterers, terminals, and ports, visit the BVIQ website.

A BVIQ inspection is the main prerequisite to commence a MER Vet process

Our state-of-the-art industry vetting program, MER Vet, uses these BVIQ inspections, past-and-present, to transparently consider the suitability of the vessel. In addition to these results, we also use numerous tools during the vetting process, including MER review and verification of observation close outs, as well as self-inspection and self-declaration tools completed on vessel via MER Ship. MER Vet dashboard allows the vetting superintendent to centrally administer and control the process from commencement until the end suitability status decision, providing a fully auditable trail.
