Welcome to the IFIA Petroleum Inspector Certification Programme!

IFIA (International Federation of Inspection Agencies) operates a Petroleum Inspector Certification Programme for cargo inspectors working in the petroleum industry. This examination forms part of the certification process.

Examination places can only be booked by companies which are members of IFIA, or which have registered to submit candidates for examination. More information on this process can be found on the IFIA website (www.ifia-federation.org) by clicking on the Inspector Certification button. Individuals are not able to register to take this examination.

A branch booking code, candidate/Inspector number and voucher number (issued by IFIA) is required in order to book an examination place. If you have not been issued with these numbers, please contact petcomadmin@ifia-federation.org in order to complete the application process.
