This meeting is convened in line with our priority to coordinate efforts and promote collaboration among NMIs in the area of legal metrology - one of the key enablers of quality infrastructure.'

Al Balooshi added: “The meeting provided a valuable opportunity for the representatives of national metrology institutes to share experiences and best practices in the area of metrology, and discuss various topics related to the development of national metrology sector and related activities in GULFMET member states.”

“EMI highlighted the UAE’s achievements in developing national metrology capabilities and enhancing the efficiency of laboratories to cope with the industrial growth. This allowed the UAE to build advanced metrology infrastructure and extensive expertise in different domains of metrology,” Al Balooshi added.

QCC empowers regulators to establish and implement product safety, legal metrology and conformity schemes.
