The new accreditations makes the ministry the first in the UAE to receive the integrated certification against all three management system standards in quality management, environment management, and occupational health and safety.


Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri, the UAE Minister of Economy, received the three quality certifications that include the ISO 9001 certification related to quality management systems, the ISO 14001 environment management certification, and the OHSAS 18001 ISO certification for the management of occupational health and safety.


The certificates were awarded at a special ceremony that was attended by Andrea Rachlin, the Swiss Ambassador to the UAE; Engineer Mohammed Ahmed bin Abdul Aziz Al Shehhi, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Economy, and Humaid bin Butti Al Muhairi, assistant undersecretary for Commercial Affairs.


The accreditations endorse the Ministry of Economy’s conformance to the highest quality standards in its efforts towards developing a competitive, global and diversified economy. The ISO accreditations also reiterate the MoE’s ongoing efforts to align itself with the Federal Government Vision 2021.


In addition, the achievement validates one of the MoE’s strategic goals for 2014-2016 of providing administrative services that conform to standards of quality, efficiency and transparency.


Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri said: “I commend the efforts made by different sectors and departments of the MoE — especially the corporate excellence department and its staff, as well as the special working groups that played a significant role in facilitating the MoE’s achievement of the international accreditation in three key areas. Our success at receiving these certificates is largely due to the MoE’s cooperation with strategic partners, including SGS Swiss that grants the internaional ISO certification. This achievement reflects the process of change in the Ministry that seeks to spread the culture of excellence and innovation at various levels.”


He added: “It is the MoE’s priority to implement the highest internationally-recognised standards of quality as envisioned by the federal government under the directives of The President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.”


Al Mansouri urged all cadres of the ministry in their various locations and capacities to endorse the highest quality of work and remain focused delivering excellence and innovation to enhance performance. He pointed out that the UAE Vision 2021, and the national agenda, required every individual to possess the skills, efficiency, excellence of performance, innovation, and creativity at work across businesses and services.


Andrea Rachlin congratulated the Ministry of Economy on achieving the significant milestone which he said demonstrated the MoE’s leading role at both the national and regional levels in developing work-place efficiency in conformance to the highest acknowledged international standards.


She emphasised that some of the finest Swiss private sector companies were seeking to receive the same accreditation that was considered a testimony to elevated levels of customer service. She also noted that public sector establishments in the UAE are recognised internationally for their pursuit of excellence indicating the efforts of the federal government in continuously upgrading its service offerings and exceeding the expectations of business partners.


The ambassador also lauded the friendship between the UAE and Switzerland and the strong bilateral economic relations between the two countries.


Mohammed Ahmed bin Abdul Aziz Al Shehhi appreciated the efforts of the Minister of Economy in continuously raising the performance and customer service levels. He said the MoE would continue its efforts to work as one team and obtain ISO certifications in various fields and activities related to its work.
