Abu Dhabi – MENA Herald:  Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC), the entity responsible for developing quality infrastructure and raising awareness on quality standards in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, is hosting a series of development programs in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain to ensure the competency of medical labs across the emirate.

The sessions will draw the participation of 40 technicians and managers of medical labs and certification bodies, and will offer insights into ISO 15189 standards for testing and calibration labs.

The workshops aim to develop the competency level of medical labs in Abu Dhabi and their ability to produce validated results as part of the emirate’s priority to improve competency levels and align them with best-in-class global standards. This will benefit all those involved in the provision of quality healthcare in the emirate including physicians and technicians, while ensuring greater accuracy of readings as well as diagnosis and treatment processes.

Mohammed Helal Al Balooshi, Marketing & Communications Acting Director at Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC), said: “In our ongoing pursuit to enhance the quality infrastructure and services in Abu Dhabi, QCC prioritizes the continuous improvement of our technical capabilities and related infrastructure to meet the evolving standard requirements of Abu Dhabi in order to enable the emirate’s healthcare sector. Our latest series of development programs reflect QCC’s proactive approach in enabling stakeholders and fulfilling the requirements of industry for cutting-edge testing and calibration services.”

The Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council was established in 2009 to raise the quality of the emirate’s exports and locally traded products, while protecting the interests of consumers and supporting the UAE’s competitive economy. This is achieved through empowering 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 Abu Dhabi conform to the highest quality standards.
