 Standards

 

A standard is a document, established by consensus and approved by a recognised body. Standards provide rules, guidelines or characteristics for specific products or services with the objective of achieving optimum order. A standard becomes a regulation if it is adopted by law. 

 

Standards usually focus on performance an​​​d are developed to minimise technical barriers.
 
QCC was established by local Law No. (3) to review and improve standards.
 
Role of QCC in Standards Provision
  • Facilitating of standards by engagement with all stakeholders under the delegated authority of the Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology (ESMA)
  • Harmonising existing standards and standards related documents through acting as a neutral facilitator representing the interests of all Abu Dhabi government and industry (in coordination with ESMA)
  • Providing a single central source of standards for Abu Dhabi Emirate and making standards available to interested parties
  • Identifying relevant standards (where no UAE standard exists) by providing technical guidance on available international standards
  • Development of new standards through engagement with all stakeholders under the mandate of ESMA in accordance with formal procedures
  • Raising overall awareness within government entities and the private sector of the importance of standards, quality and conformity
 
QCC supports Abu Dhabi stakeholders in development of UAE standards through engagement with ESMA and secretariat support.
 
​​ 

 
Standing Technical Committees

 
Two standing committees have been nominated by QCC with a broad scope to ensure holistic coverage of standards issue on a priority basis. The committees are:
  • Water, Energy, Built Environment and Waste
  • Food, Agriculture, Healthcare and Medicine
 
The standing committees has over 70 nominated members representing regulators from all sectors in Abu Dhabi Government as well as representatives from Federal entities including ESMA. The committees (through their working groups) will drive prioritisation of Abu Dhabi’s conformity needs and drive harmonisation on the use of the UAE and international standards across the industry and regulators of the Emirate.

We regularly invite nominations from industry experts to participate in the development and adaptation of standards in Abu Dhabi.
