His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has issued a law, setting up the Emirates Global Centre for Accreditation to support the national economy and boost Dubai's status as the Global Capital for Islamic Economy.
Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Supervisor of the Dubai Initiative as the Capital of the Islamic Economy, said, "The law reflects the vision of Shaikh Mohammed to make Dubai a reliable reference worldwide for the system of Islamic economy."
"We are confident that this initiative will contribute towards achieving our aspirations regarding economic diversification and supporting the Islamic economy. Being the global leader in this area requires us to continue to innovate.
"Our strategic steps are going as planned to strengthen the Islamic economy and ensuring it has a global impact by providing it with essential and innovative components required by the economic systems worldwide."
The centre aims to strengthen Dubai's position as the global Islamic economic capital by winning international recognition and backing of competent organisations at the regional and global levels in different areas of accreditation. The centre will also help in facilitation of trade exchanges and strengthening the role of the state and the emirate in industry and trade areas.
It also aims to ensure quality, trust and credibility of the conformity certificates issued by the assessment bodies.
The law specifies the terms of reference of the centre, which include the accreditation of the services provided by the conformity bodies within and outside the state, including testing, calibration and inspection of services.
