Electric Car & Motor Vehicle Components Certification
The Emirates Authority for Standardization & Metrology (ESMA) is a Federal UAE Authority, established by UAE Federal Law (28), 2001. As the only reference in the UAE in terms of quality standards, ESMA's strategy aims at supporting the national economy by establishing a new era of excellence and quality.
With the development of new energy technologies and the requirements for sustainable development, automobile electrification is now driving the new economic agenda of oil-rich Arab countries. UAE is one of the early adopters of compulsory implementation of certification for electric vehicles in the Arabian Gulf countries. The UAE ESMA requires that all electric vehicles and electric buses entering the UAE must be registered and certified in ESMA.
ESMA has established Technical Committees in the fields of food products, construction and building materials products, electrical and electronic products, chemical and plastic products, mechanical products, petroleum products and lubricants, and metrology and information technology.
