Dubai, 20 April 2021. Eurovent Middle East, the region’s HVACR industry association, has become a member of the Cool Coalition, a global initiative led by UN Environment and the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Programme. The initiative promotes a holistic and cross-sectoral approach to meet the cooling needs of both industrialised and developing countries through better building design, energy efficiency, renewables, and thermal storage as well as phasing down refrigerants with a high global warming potential.
On behalf of all of us at Eurovent, I would like to sincerely wish you a very happy holiday season and a prosperous New Year. May it be filled with health and happiness, as well as personal and professional success and growth for all.
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.
