ADQCC partners with ADGM on inspections to ensure product safety in the emirate

Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (ADQCC) has partnered with the Registration Authority at Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM Registration Authority) on an agreement to strengthen cooperation between the two parties to ensure product safety and market fairness, thereby protecting consumers and boosting the economy of Abu Dhabi.

His Excellency Ahmed Jasim Al Zaabi, Chairman of ADQCC, witnessed the signing of the agreement between Dr Helal Humaid Al Kaabi, Secretary-General of ADQCC, and Hamad Sayah Al Mazrouei, CEO of ADGM Registration Authority.

Dr Helal Humaid Al Kaabi, Secretary-General of ADQCC, said: “The signing of this MoU reflects ADQCC’s commitment to strengthening cooperation with stakeholders to ensure product safety and market fairness, which will protect consumers and boost the economy of Abu Dhabi.”

Hamad Sayah Al Mazrouei, CEO of ADGM Registration Authority, said: “We are delighted to sign the MoU with the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council. This partnership underscores our commitment to strengthening our business community and ensuring a seamless experience on Al Maryah and Al Reem Islands as we strive to achieve the highest levels of excellence to further strengthen Abu Dhabi’s global position as a leading destination to work, live, and thrive.”

According to the agreement, ADQCC’s Market and Consumer Services Sector will conduct inspections in coordination with ADGM Registration Authority on a wide range of restricted products, including household electrical appliances, toys, household chemical cleaners, tobacco and cigarette products, vehicle tires, and food contact materials.

ADQCC will also conduct metrological verification (measurement) of pre-packaged products and legal measuring instruments, such as commercial selling scales, jewellery scales, oud and Arabic perfumes, and petroleum derivatives meters at service stations. These operations will take place in the commercial and industrial facilities of the Abu Dhabi Global Jurisdiction Area, which in turn is subject to its own laws and regulations.

ADQCC has been internationally accredited as a globally recognised inspection body in accordance with international standard ISO 17020 since 2018.
