Accident Reconstruction and Investigations

accidents including collisions, allisions, fire damage, personal injuries, groundings, oil
spills, and cargo mishaps.


This service provides our clients a unique and complete perspective of any incident by the
use of the diverse pool of knowledge found on our company. We use our surveyors´
knowledge and experience to determine the most likely scenario for the causes of the
incident and assess the full extent of the damage and required repairs. We can evaluate a
composite material structure to determine the causes of structural/mechanical failures or
other problems.
We can also undertake strength analysis of the damaged hull sections through a certified
testing laboratory.


Cargo Inspections

We determine the quantity of both dry and liquid bulk cargoes loaded/discharged by draft
survey or tank measurement or other means. We also verify by representative sampling
and testing of the samples, or by other means, that a cargo meets specific parameters.
Finally the physical cubic measurement of a particular cargo is carried out to determine
freight payable and/or for pre-planning stowage. IME provides surveys for compliance,
packaging, stowage and marking/labeling for the shipment of dangerous goods, including
radioactive materials.

Our services in this category include:
         • Loss and Damage Surveys
