Daikin awarded Emirates Quality Mark by ESMA
Daikin products will now be labelled with the EQM stamp in the UAE
The Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology (ESMA) has awarded air conditioning solutions provider Daikin the Emirates Quality Mark (EQM) certification for its range of products.
The Japanese company won the certification after it successfully complied with ESMA’s requirements, following a series of test and inspections that took place at the Daikin factory in Malaysia that manufactures all room air conditioning systems distributed in the UAE and the region.
Daikin products will now be labelled with the EQM stamp in the UAE, to attest that they comply with the safety and energy efficiency requirements of ESMA.
Commenting on the certification, Michel Farah, senior manager - product management, Daikin Middle East said: “We are honoured to receive the Emirates Quality Mark, and we will continue to pioneer new technologies and highest quality products offered to the market.”
Abdulla Al Maeeni, acting director general, ESMA, said: “The factory inspection conducted showed that Daikin is producing products that comply with the safety and energy efficiency requirements in the UAE, which are considered as difficult to meet due to the high ambient temperature and high humidity compared with other countries.”
“The approval granted to Daikin is an approval that provides confidence to the products by the end user,” Al Maeeni said.
Ryoji Sano, vice-president, Daikin Middle East, added, “The Emirates Quality Mark reflects the capabilities of Daikin to lead international standards. The company is committed to offering the best available products to our consumers and we will continue to be the reference in the industry by introducing the most energy efficient, environmentally friendly and highest quality products in the market.”
