His Excellency Dr Rashid Ahmad bin Fahad: Authorization is key step towards developing federal measurement infrastructure to serve industry sectors

Abu Dhabi-UAE: 9 May, 2017 – In line with the directives of the visionary leadership of the UAE to enhance collaboration, coordination and integration among federal and local government entities, Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA) and Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC) today signed an agreement to authorize Emirates Metrology Institute as the national institute of measurement in the UAE.

The agreement was signed by His Excellency Dr Rashid Ahmad bin Fahad, Minister of State and Chairman of ESMA, and His Excellency Khalifa Mohammed Faris Al Mazrouei, Chairman of QCC in the presence of His Excellency Abdulallah Abdelkader Moeini, Director General, ESMA and His Excellency Dr Helal Humaid Al Kaabi, Acting Secretary General of Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council.

Under the agreement, the standards used by EMI for the measurement of mass, volume, density, temperature, humidity, length angle, force, pressure, torque, electrical quantities and time-frequency will be recognized as the national standards of measurement. This will allow the country to enable accurate measurements in manufacturing and research to cope with the ongoing progress in economic and productive segments, even while meeting the dynamic requirements of the industrial sector.

An advanced economy is a critical step in helping us achieve the objectives of the UAE Vision 2021 that aims to prepare the nation for the post-oil era.”

He added: “The provision of a sophisticated infrastructure for measurement and calibration services is key to serving all economic sectors, especially the industrial and productive sectors that seek to adopt the best international standards. This will facilitate the smooth movement of goods and merchandise between the UAE and its regional and global partners. The decision to authorize Emirates Metrology Institute to act as the National Metrology Institute was taken following the technical assessment of the massive measurement capabilities available at EMI’s laboratories.

His Excellency Dr Rashid also pointed out: “The UAE’s recent affiliation to the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) will help the country meet its calibration and measurement requirements locally, especially in the view of the rapid industrial, commercial and urban development witnessed by the country in the past decade. In joining forces to ensure the accuracy of measurements in the country’s markets, QCC and ESMA are resolved to increase the competitiveness of our products in the regional and international markets, while ensuring the quality of these products for local consumption.”

Serving as a national reference institution in metrology and its various applications, EMI promotes compliance with quality standards and enhances the competitive advantages of our strategic industries, enabling them to become leaders in their domains at regional and international levels.”
