Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council to hold workshop on revising standards of infrastructure projects

The Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC), the group responsible for developing infrastructure and raising awareness on quality standards in Abu Dhabi, has organised a workshop to discuss revising building standards, which will increase the cost of executing infrastructure projects. 

The workshop follows the objects set forth by the Abu Dhabi Plan to develop a competitive, sustainable and globally open economy, within the framework of implementing the emirate's approach toward economic incentives, and re-examining building regulations -- particularly across the residential, commercial and industrial sectors. 

The QCC has appointed two government entities to oversee the process, including Water, Energy, Built Environment and Waste, and Food, Agriculture, Healthcare and Medicine.

With over 70 nominated members, both committees will "drive prioritisation of Abu Dhabi's conformity needs and promote harmonisation on the use of UAE and international standards throughout the industry," said a statement.
