His Excellency Hussain Salem Al Katheeri, Secretary General, QCC, said: “In our role as a council of regulators and industry representatives, we consider it our core priority to offer conformity schemes and certifications that are aligned with the strategic objectives of the emirate. Through this strategy, it is our aim to sustain a certain level of product quality. The Abu Dhabi Trustmark for Environmental Performance indicates that certified products perform with certain environmental stewardship.”
A conformity scheme is a documented programme outlining the process of certification by the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council. The document outlines the method of acquiring certification, detailing the standards and equivalencies, application requirements, testing regime, as well as the certification process.
The Trustmark for Environmental Performance will help consumers identify products that meet the sustainability criteria. Consumers can make a choice between an environmentally sustainable product that meets quality standards and a product that does not comply with those standards.”
Products that achieve certification through testing against the environmental criteria of the QCC are granted the right to use the Trustmark for Environmental Performance in product packaging, promotion and merchandising. Currently, applying and gaining the certification is available for no charge.
The Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council was established in 2009 to raise the quality of Abu Dhabi’s exports and products traded locally, while protecting the interest of the emirate’s consumers and supporting its competitive economy. This is achieved through enabling regulators to establish and implement product safety, legal metrology and conformity schemes. QCC also sets guidelines and benchmarks to identify and verify that the products manufactured and traded in the emirate conform to the highest quality standards.
The SME Hertfordshire Business Awards reflect hard work, enterprise and endeavour in business and the Business Innovation category looks at how businesses encourage creativity and new thinking and how knowledge or technology play an important part in developing the business.
We look forwards to the awards ceremony which is held on the 26th July at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel.
SMART SafetyThe King of The Road P860 LED luminaire has been independently tested by UL to confirm ENEC Certification to BS EN 60598 including vibration testing as a Rough Service Luminaire to IEC 60068-2-6: 2007.
In addition, we have completed endurance vibration testing to ANSI C136.31:2010 involving a sweep to find the resonant frequencies in each of the X, Y and Z-axes followed by sustained vibration at the worst resonant frequency for each axis for 100,000 cycles.
The same luminaire has therefore been tested for over 300,000 cycles of resonant vibration in total.
