Abhay joined the QACE team in January 2020 following 20 years with Lloyd’s Register where he held senior governance, assurance and improvement positions at global and regional levels. Abhay has a background in technical performance. In that role, he was responsible for a transformation programme, that helped improve ship maintenance and reduce common deficiencies found on ships. This was achieved through a digitalising data related to port state control inspections and by producing a series of pre-port arrival pocket checklists, now widely used in the marine industry. He was heavily involved with internal and external audit and introduced risk-based and remote ISO audit methods.
