Eurovent Middle East to host Product Certification Workshop

Industry Association continues its ‘HVACR Leadership Workshop’ series with next live webinar

Dubai, 31 May 2020. Quality control, product performance and safety are topics which are being focused on more and more in a world driven by price competitiveness. Although manufacturers run stringent quality control and performance tests in-house, third-party testing and certification serves as a means to verify and ensure that the data published by manufacturers is unbiased and attested. During this webinar, the seminars aim to deliver an understanding of the principles behind certification as a means to promote trust and reliability in the context of product performance and safety.

Third-party testing and certification are essential not only for manufacturers, but for investors, planners, consultants and end users alike who all benefit from reliable and verified product characteristics, particularly when they are critical for safety or energy consumption. Fraudulent claims, counterfeit products or misleading product information can lead to expensive results, from safety hazards to underperforming systems.

In this ‘HVACR Leadership Workshop’ by Eurovent Middle East, leading industry experts will elaborate on the fundamentals and value of third-party certification to verify the integrity of product performance data, ensure product safety and maintain compliance with relevant regulatory requirements:

9 June 2020, 11:00-13:00h (GST) - The Value of Product Certification: Product Performance, Safety and Compliance

Registration is free-of-charge on the association website:
