DUBAI: Eurovent has signed a memorandum of understanding with the GCC Standardisation Organisation (GSO), the standards organisation for the member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council and Yemen.
The partnership, which was signed during Eurovent’s recent Middle East chapter congress, is intended to bring closer cooperation on standardisation and capacity building and facilitate exchange of expertise between the two organisations.
GSO president Saud bin Nasser Al Khusaibi emphasised the importance of the GSO-Eurovent partnership and explained: “There is an increasing recognition of the important role of the private sector in enhancing the standardisation activities contributing to economic growth and protecting the consumer, environment, and public health. On the other hand, GSO has a central place in supporting efforts in fostering a regulatory environment that enables the private sector to flourish and fulfil its role as the main engine of growth”
“The formalisation of our longstanding cooperation by this memorandum of understanding is the best evidence of our commitment to the Middle East,” said Eurovent president Raul Corredera Haener. “For more than five years, our chapter Eurovent Middle East has been taking up the role of a stakeholder for the industry in the region and with this MoU we now ensure that the combined expertise of the European industry is at disposal to the GSO.”
