Standards and Technical Regulations in the U.A.E.February 14, 2017
The U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council is proud to present a new report on “U.A.E. Standards & Technical Regulations.”
This report begins by introducing the U.A.E.’s standardization body, the Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA), and the processes through which it develops both standards and technical regulations. The paper subsequently discusses how businesses can stay abreast of U.A.E. standards and regulations, as well as demonstrate their conformity with these measures. The primer goes on to review some key ESMA initiatives in 2016, as well as several of the Authority’s plans for 2017. Finally, the report concludes by offering a list of ways that U.S. businesses can engage with ESMA and provides contact information along these lines.
In so doing, this report seeks to achieve several objectives:
- Facilitate the sale of products in the U.A.E. market by providing a clear and comprehensive overview of standards and technical regulations in that country;
- Help those businesses already active in the U.A.E. market adapt to, and prepare for, recent and future ESMA initiatives; and
- Encourage businesses to be proactive about engaging with ESMA about standards through appropriate channels.
The U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council would like to thank its partners at ESMA for their assistance in the publication of this report. The Business Council looks forward to continuing its collaboration with ESMA to provide its member companies with updated and accurate information about key developments with regards to standards and technical regulations in the months and years ahead.Standards and Technical Regulations in the U.A.E.
