The meeting provided GULFMET General Assembly members and metrology experts from leading national metrology institutes an opportunity to meet during the sessions of the Gulfmet Technical Committees and General Assembly and present the progress of their institutes and Gulfmet.  Participants also discussed the challenges in metrology and proposed solutions and next steps to be taken to address these challenges.

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.
During the meeting, Gulfmet General Assembly (GA) approved the decisions of the relevant technical committees and elected Eng. Mohammed Al Mulla, Quality Manager of EMI, as the next Chair of the Gulfmet Technical Committee for Quality.

Established in 2009, the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council seeks 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 establish and implement product safety, legal metrology and conformity schemes. Furthermore, the Council sets guidelines and benchmarks to verify that the products manufactured and traded in Abu Dhabi conform to the highest quality standards. 

Set up in 2010, Gulfmet seeks to strengthen the metrology and calibration capabilities, and serves as a vital link between NMIs and Joint Committee of the Regional Metrology (JCRB) - part of International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM).  Eng. Mohammed Al Mulla, Quality Manager of EMI served as the Chairman of Gulfmet since its establishment in 2010 until 2016.
