Daikin's HVAC products given EQM certification
Japanese firm’s products get UAE pass mark after testing process
Japanese air conditioning firm Daikin has announced that its products have been granted the Emirates Quality Mark (EQM).
The Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA) granted the certification upon the company’s successful compliance with ESMA's certification requirements, after a series of tests and inspections.
Daikin products will now be labelled with the EQM stamp in the UAE, to attest they comply with the safety and energy efficiency requirements of ESMA.
“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,” Michel Farah, senior manager of product management of Daikin Middle East said.
Testing and inspection of the products took place at the company’s factory in Malaysia which manufactures all of the firm’s room air conditioning systems distributed in the UAE and the region.
“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 in the products to the end user,” said Abdulla Al Maeeni, acting director general of ESMA.
Ryoji Sano, vice-president of 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.”
Daikan’s air conditioning products are designed for residential, commercial and industrial applications.
