What is Repsol Vetting?
We are a team of marine experts in charge of ensuring that the vessels involved in the Repsol Group's undertakings meet Repsol's criteria and process standards.
The following vessels must be rated as acceptable in the vetting process:
Our Vetting team is in charge of carrying out assessments in accordance with our vetting processes at both Repsol terminals and other national and international terminals.
A range of vetting processes are available to adapt to the type of vessel being screened
Repsol Vetting Process
This process applies to vessels regulated by the SIRE and EBIS programs, cargo ships, and tugs.
The vetting assessment starts with a request from one of the Repsol business units, and it's regulated by the Repsol Vetting Process and Marine Safety Criteria document, which can be downloaded below.
Repsol Vetting does not pre-approve vessels, so they must be screened each time they are nominated by a Repsol Group business.
If you are interested in arranging an inspection for your vessel, please email us a formal request at least five days beforehand indicating the port, date, local agents, and type of operations. Our main inspection areas are located in Europe and the Americas.

Repsol Vetting Process for F(P)SOs
This process is applicable to Floating Storage and Offloading Units (FSO) and Floating Production Storage Offloading Units (FPSO).
The vetting assessment starts with a request from one of the Repsol business units, and it's regulated by the Repsol Vetting Process & Marine Safety Criteria for F(P)SOs document, which can be downloaded below.
Compliance of F(P)SOs with the requirements does not grant the Owner or Operator any right whatsoever to have the F(P)SO chartered or employed by Repsol.
During the contract, F(P)SOs are subject to a Repsol physical inspection at intervals not exceeding 12 months.
Repsol Offshore Vetting Process
We apply this process to vessels under the OCIMF-OVID program.
The assessment of the vessel will begin once requested by a Repsol company or business unit. The assessment will be carried out in accordance with the OVVP (Offshore Vessel Vetting Process), which can be downloaded below.
If you need a vessel to be screened by Vetting, it must have an OVPQ available that has been updated within the last 30 days. You may fill it out on the OCIMF-OVID website.
Repsol River Vetting Process (E&P)
This process is applied to all river vessels used for E&P projects including all propelled and non-propelled vessels, liquid and dry cargo transport, pushers, and passenger vessels hired by the Repsol Group.
Vessel vetting will begin once commercial interest has been received via email to: email@example.com. This will be requested by one of Repsol's business units in accordance with the Safety Criteria for Vetting River Vessels document, which can be downloaded below.
