Abu Dhabi-UAE: 21 December, 2017 –  Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC), the entity responsible for developing quality infrastructure in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, hosted a workshop to introduce consultants and contractors executing infrastructure projects undertaken by the Follow-up Committee of President's Initiatives to the Council's product and personnel certification schemes.

In line with the Council's aim of enhancing the quality and sustainability of the built environment in Abu Dhabi, the workshop included detailed presentations on the conformity schemes, and examined the emirate's current and future infrastructure needs in the context of its economic development .priorities

In June 2017, the Follow-Up Committee of President's Initiatives endorsed a raft of personnel and product conformity schemes issued by QCC. The endorsement followed the signing of a partnership agreement that aimed to strengthen strategic collaboration between the two parties.

Under the terms of the partnership, entities that hold a Certificate of Conformity and Abu Dhabi Trustmark issued by the Council become preferred suppliers of the Committee. In addition, the Committee encourages its partners to use their products and services. Furthermore, the agreement promotes exchange of knowledge and expertise in the construction sector and related services.

Engineer Abdullah Hassan Al Muaini, Executive Director of Conformity Scheme Services at QCC, said: 'The workshop is part of QCC's drive to promote sustainable development in Abu Dhabi in collaboration with the private sector. Through introducing our private sector partners to QCC's certification schemes, we seek to build local capacities to ensure that all infrastructure projects in Abu Dhabi comply with the highest local and international quality standards.”

He added: “In order to develop state-of-the-art urban infrastructure in the emirate and drive wide-scale adoption of sustainability practices across sectors, it is vital that stakeholders in the construction industry apply our conformity schemes in projects that are taking shape. I am confident that the outcomes of the workshop will ultimately improve the quality of infrastructure in Abu Dhabi and enable it to keep pace with the rapid economic and urban expansion of the UAE.”

In a bid to create awareness about its product, service and personnel certification schemes, and in line with its strategic objectives, QCC conducts regular workshops for its partners from the industrial sector. In addition to familiarising the participants with the Council's quality requirements, the sessions allow QCC to gain insight into the specific needs of each sector and step up efforts to achieve the sustainable development goals outlined in the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.

Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council was established in 2009 to raise the quality of the emirate's exports and locally traded products while protecting the interests of consumers and supporting the UAE's competitive economy. QCC empowers regulators to implement product safety, legal metrology and conformity schemes. The Council also sets guidelines and benchmarks to verify that products manufactured and traded in Abu Dhabi conform to the highest quality standards.
