    High risk counterfeit products are

    difficult to identify without

    sophisticated local testing

    capabilities

    Low quality imports fail to meet

    safety standards and pose risk to

    consumers

    Enable Abu Dhabi’s locally

    produced goods to meet technical

    requirements for foreign export

    Develop the substance of reputation

    to support goods “Made in the UAE”

    and “Made in Abu Dhabi”

    Abu Dhabi Emirate requires a solid Quality Infrastructure (QI) to achieve its economic objectives and integrate with global markets

    The Abu Dhabi Quality Agenda

    Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030

    is shaping a diversified and

    globally integrated economy . . .

    “Abu Dhabi as a

    sustainable, diversified,

    high-value-added economy

    that encourages

    enterprises and

    entrepreneurship and is

    well integrated in the

    global economy leading to

    better opportunities for all”

    . . . Which requires a dedicated effort to prepare the

    Emirate for the challenges presented by varying

    degrees of Quality around the world. . .

    . . . and which has driven the Abu

    Dhabi Quality agenda across

    three areas

    Integrate with the Global Trade System

    Eliminate Low Quality Imports

    Ensure Capabilities to Test Products

    The Conformity Scheme Services Sector performs two main services: Scheme Development and Certification Issuance

    The two services are complementary and involve support from all QCC departments

    Conformity Scheme Development Certification Issuance

    • Define Scheme Concept

    • Convene Technical evaluation committees

    • Conduct Technical assessment of product specifications

    • Create Scheme Hypothesis

    • Assess Environmental, Social and Economic Impact of

    scheme adoption

    • Develop Implementation Program

    • Launch Scheme and follow up marketing

    • Promote conformity scheme adoption

    • Assist scheme applicants

    • Application review

    • Application technical evaluation

    • Certification decision by Committee
