Abu Dhabi hosts workshop for project contractors

Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC), the entity responsible for developing quality infrastructure in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, hosted a workshop to introduce consultants and contractors executing infrastructure projects undertaken by the Follow-up Committee of President's Initiatives to the Council’s product and personnel certification schemes.

In line with the QCC’s aim of enhancing the quality and sustainability of the built-environment in Abu Dhabi, the workshop included detailed presentations on the conformity schemes, and examined the emirate’s current and future infrastructure needs in the context of its economic development.

In June this year, the Follow-Up Committee of President's Initiatives endorsed a raft of personnel and product conformity schemes issued by QCC.

The endorsement followed the signing of a partnership agreement that aimed to strengthen strategic collaboration between the two parties.

As per the terms of the partnership, entities that hold a Certificate of Conformity and Abu Dhabi Trustmark issued by the Council become preferred suppliers of the Committee. In addition, the Committee encourages its partners to use their products and services.

Furthermore, the agreement promotes exchange of knowledge and expertise in the construction sector and related services.

Abdullah Hassan Al Muaini, the executive director of Conformity Scheme Services at QCC, said: "The workshop is part of QCC’s drive to promote sustainable development in Abu Dhabi in collaboration with the private sector."

"Through introducing our private sector partners to QCC’s certification schemes, we seek to build local capacities to ensure that all infrastructure projects in Abu Dhabi comply with the highest local and international quality standards," stated Al Muaini.

"In order to develop state-of-the-art urban infrastructure in the emirate and drive wide-scale adoption of sustainability practices across sectors, it is vital that stakeholders in the construction industry apply our conformity schemes in projects that are taking shape," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
