In 2018, the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) introduced the Mooring Equipment Guidelines Edition 4 as a succcessor of Edition 3 (2008).

The Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) is widely recognised as the voice of the oil industry providing expertise in the safe and environmentally responsible transport and handling of hydrocarbons in ships and terminals and setting standards for continuous improvement.

The OCIMF mission is to be the foremost authority on the safe and environmentally responsible operation of oil tankers, terminals and offshore support vessels, promoting continuous improvement in standards of design and operation. Its members consists of 110 companies worldwide.

The Mooring Equipment Guidelines (MEG) is an industry publication for the safe mooring of tankers and gas carriers at terminals. These guidelines provide an extensive guidance for safe mooring for ships and terminals. This publication also provides guidance on human centred design for safer mooring arrangements.

The key changes in the MEG 4 include:

  • Enhanced guidance for the purchasing, condition monitoring, and retirement of mooring lines and tails.
  • Enhanced guidance on documentation of mooring equipment.
  • New chapter on the Human Factors in Mooring Design.
  • New chapter on Jetty Design and Fittings.
  • New chapter on Ship Shore Interface.
  • New chapter on Alternative Technologies.


All of these recommendations have an extensive impact on your newbuild projects, purchasing, crewing, health & safety and technical management.

The premature retirement of synthetic ropes and steel wire ropes before their service lifespan wastes your investment. More important is that an unexpected rope failure is a serious safety issue and can have unmitigated consequences of all sorts.

In the view of MEG4, TEHO Ropes Europe has a variation of training courses to help operators safeguard safety and their investments. The TEHO trainers can train your crew to inspect, maintain, repair or discard your mooring equipment on board or on shore.

Together with your technical department, TEHO Ropes Europe can assist you with your Line Management Plan, as part of the Mooring Safety Management Plan, and recommendation an optimisation program in which your mooring equipment are periodically inspected and tested on a schedule.
