Of the leading classification societies, ABS has the largest regional presence with offices in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Bahrain, and nearly 100 marine and offshore surveyors and engineers.ABS Regional Vice President, Middle East Joe Brincat says, “Safety is at the center of everything we do as a classification society. We are honored to have been recognized by Seatrade for our contribution to safety and quality, both in our work with clients and in our own internal processes.”

ABS undertakes a broad range of safety-related initiatives. The class society continues to build its Marin- er Safety Center, a project that compiles and analyzes industry ‘close call’ and ‘near miss’ incidents in order to produce guid- ance for the mitigation of potential human error in the maritime environment.
