Criterion for judgment is made based upon internal vetting criteria of Idemitsu, taking account of all available information including ship inspection reports (of Idemitsu Tanker or other OCIMF SIRE members), terminal feedback, information on the market such as Lloyd's Fairplay data, Port State Control information, Equasis data and owner's/operator's assessment. Ship's physical conditions (ship's age, mooring facilities, parallel body length, etc.) are also taken into consideration.
The our system attaches much importance to Idemitsu inspections. It is carried out by Idemitsu's experienced inspectors and obtain extra information such as detailed comments and evaluation, that are not seen in SIRE reports, However, Idemitsu recognizes that the membership's mutual trust in SIRE reports is also necessary to avoid unreasonable overlap of inspections.
SIRE reports are treated as one of the most important basis of judgment in the Idemitsu Vetting.
