What is Repsol Vetting?

We are a team of marine experts in charge of ensuring that the vessels involved with the Repsol group's undertakings meet Repsol's criteria and process standards.
The following vessels must be rated as acceptable in the vetting process:
  • Vessels owned by the Repsol group
  • Time charter vessels
  • Voyage charter vessels
  • Any ship operating at a Repsol Group terminal even if this operation is undertaken by an Operator not belonging to the Group
  • Any unchartered vessel carrying cargo belonging to the Repsol group
Our vetting team is in charge of carrying out evaluations 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.

On May 11th, 2020 a new process has been implemented with the following main changes:

  • Vessels are required to be screened each time they are nominated by Repsol Group.
  • Repsol Vetting does not pre-approve vessels.
  • Technical Operators of the vessels that need to pass the vetting process do not need to fill out the Repsol Vetting questionnaire.

The Vetting assessment starts with a request from any Commercial department within Repsol Group and is regulated by the Repsol Vetting Process and Marine Safety Criteria document, which can be downloaded below.

If you are interested in arranging an individual inspection for your vessel at your own expense, 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 America.
