In addition to ensuring a safe and fair marketplace for all, such efforts protect the interests of both consumers and service providers and position the emirate as a leading hub for product and service quality and conformity '.
Al Mehairi added: “At QCC, we carry out regular inspections on all service stations run by ADNOC Distribution in Abu Dhabi to enhance consumer confidence in the accuracy of fuel meters and increase the awareness of motorists. We urge motorists to look for the ‘Verified’ seal on fuel dispensers before fueling their vehicles.
“It is indeed commendable that 99 percent of the fuel meters used at ADNOC Distribution service stations comply with the highest mandatory standards. It indicates the company’s commitment to ensuring the accurate reading of all fuel meters in line with the applicable technical specifications.”
