    The conformity assessment procedure two different approval options:

  • Mandatory ECAS (Emirates Conformity Assessment Scheme) certification, demonstrating that the product has been approved according to the requirements of Emirates Standardization and Metrology Authority (ESMA)
  • EQM (Emirates Quality Mark) certification, a voluntary certification demonstrating compliance of the products with approved standards and giving the consumer confidence that the production process of the products has been monitored by an independent body. The EQM ‘Certificate of Conformity’ (CoO) requires a separate license for the use of the Emirates Quality Mark.
