The Idwal Grade is comprised of over 500 individual data points, captured during the physical inspection process.
A vessel inspection ordinarily requires between 8-12 hours onboard, with full access to all areas of the vessel necessary to ensure the job is completed to the right standard.
Each Idwal surveyor works within a rigorous and standardised inspection framework that considers every component of the vessel, with data points submitted and supported with objectified evidence.
The framework guides the surveyor explicitly through the inspection and ensures a greater level of objectivity and sophistication in the process.
Evidence is provided in the way of logs, certificates, photographs and onboard documentation which are uploaded, organised and then analysed by our internal technical team, alongside the supporting algorithms in support of the physical viewpoints and data collected by the attending surveyor.
Our methodology enables us to calculate the Idwal Grade programmatically from all the data points and also to highlight key areas on the vessel, down to individual areas of interest, such as crew conditions.
The Idwal Grade has been in use since 2018 (2019 programmatically).
