The second phase of the audit involved conducting inspection visits to QCC’s Verification Services Bureau, along with field visits with inspectors to verify the full implementation of the relevant technical procedures applied to the inspection and verification services for gold, Oud and other commercially used scales, in addition to fuel pumps’ meters in service stations throughout the Emirates. 

Sultan Al Mehairi, Director of Information Service and Engagement at QCC commented: “We are proud that the Council has received type “A“ International Accreditation as per ISO 17020-2012.
