Emirates Authority for Standardization & Metrology (ESMA) Certification

Emirates Authority for Standardization & Metrology (ESMA) is a UAE Federal Authority formed by UAE Government.

ESMA was formed to act as a regulatory authority and govern the Certification of certain regulated products that are sold in the UAE.

ESMA will oversee the product quality and adoption of international standards by the manufacturers and traders. It emphasizes the practice of continuous improvements in the manufacturing processes to ensure consistent product quality.

ESMA has established Technical Committees to monitor quality management in the sectors such as food products, construction, and building materials, electrical and electronics, chemical and plastic, mechanical products, petroleum products, IT products, etc.

Accreditation Systems from ESMA, UAE

ESMA has two Accreditation systems the Emirates National Accreditation System (ENAS) and the Emirates Quality Mark (EQM) for ensuring product quality is maintained as per international standards.

There are designated Notified Bodies authorized by ESMA to issue the Certificate of Conformity (ECAS) and the Emirates Quality Mark (EQM) for imported products on behalf of ESMA. Local and imported products are verified for compliance against International Standards.

Under the regulatory purview of ESMA, the Emirates National Accreditation System (ENAS) accredits the conformity assessment bodies and oversees the Emirates Quality Mark (EQM).

ESMA also oversees the Issue of the Certificate of Conformity (ECAS) for the traders and manufacturers of regulated products.
