However, limited research has been attempted to evaluate the auditing mechanism, its quality, and links with the effectiveness of the Code. The aim of this Paper is to define the concepts of quality in auditing and thereafter propose a model for measuring audit quality in maritime safety management. The major challenge is that almost all auditing literature and research is focused on accounting and financial domain. Therefore, it was decided to utilize suitable principles and concepts about audit quality from financial domain and modify them to maritime context. As no theoretical model for Audit Quality in maritime domain is available, a model sourced from financial audits is modified for use. The framework for recontextualized modifying of borrowed theories from the disciplines outside the reference discipline, was used on Wooten (2003) model and Maritime Audit Quality Model (MAQM) has been proposed for evaluating ISM auditing mechanism.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.17.04.03}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Maritime Safety, Maritime Safety Regulation, International Safety Management (ISM) Code, Audit Quality, ISM Audit, Maritime Safety Management, Audit Quality Model, IMO} }
