The UAE’s Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT) has signed a MoU with global standardisation organisation American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) to promote the growth of UAE’s economy and further develop national standards for health, safety, and the environment.

As per the MoU, the two entities will strengthen their relationship to promote communication between the two organisations; avoid duplication of work where possible; promote knowledge of the standards development activities of each organisation; utilise the resources of ASTM International to strengthen MoIAT’s standards system; and promote MoIAT’s adoption of ASTM International’s standards.

This is in line with the ministry’s efforts to collaborate with global partners in the field of standardisation as part of its work to align with international standards and best practices.
