Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC), as part of its leading role in supporting various sectors of the Abu Dhabi economy especially the industrial sector to achieve sustainable development, is participating in the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) that is underway from 20 – 22 January at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).
Through its dedicated pavilion at the three-day global event, QCC seeks to provide insight among manufacturers and suppliers into its standards and conformity programmes. A technical document, the conformity programme stipulates requirements for products, systems and personnel in order to meet specific criteria that are based on assessments and continuous monitoring and inspection of markets. The conformity programme is consistently updated to meet the requirements of various government entities in order to enable Abu Dhabi achieve its social, economic and environmental goals.
QCC’s pavilion at WFES also showcases products that have received the Trustmark for Environmental Performance and conform to the specifications and requirements set by the regulatory authorities in the emirate.
His Excellency Hussain Salem Al Katheeri, Secretary General – QCC, said: “QCC aims to enhance safety and quality of products while ensuring Abu Dhabi’s conformance to international standards. Through our participation at WFES 2014, we seek to engage with various partners, stakeholders and the general public to promote conformity with quality standards and specifications. Our efforts will serve to enhance the mutual trust between industry and consumers, and protect the local community within the emirate from the hazards of trading in unsafe products.”
Organised by Masdar, WFES offers a crucial opportunity for governments, companies and policy makers to discuss necessary measures that stimulate industrial growth in the Middle East and boost the efficiency of products within the energy sector. The event, hosted alongside the International Water Summit (IWS) and the inaugural edition of EcoWASTE 2014, has drawn more than 30,000 visitors this year.
QCC was set up in 2009 to improve the quality of Abu Dhabi’s exports and locally traded products and to protect the interest consumers while creating a competitive economy in the UAE. The Council seeks to enable regulators to develop and implement product safety and legal standards in accordance with compliance schemes. QCC also specifies the guidelines and basic criteria to identify and verify that various products manufactured and traded in Abu Dhabi conform to the highest quality standards.
