meetMED Workshop on assessing the existing quality infrastructures for EE and RES equipment and services in the SEMCs

Quality for RES and EE products and services has become increasingly important as RES and EE applications (e.g. building insulation materials, energy efficient windows, solar water heaters, energy-efficient appliances) are being largely used in the Mediterranean region. In order to ensure minimum standards, necessary quality infrastructures should be available for the successful implementation of specific RES and EE programmes. Those quality infrastructures include laboratories, testing facilities, as well as inspection, certification or accreditation bodies.

This workshop is an opportunity to convene national and regional consultations with groups of experts, through sessions that will be dedicated to verifying and discussing the results collected through the questionnaires with respect to the level of quality control infrastructures in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Countries (SEMCs) as well as to analyzing their needs, opportunities, weaknesses and strengths.

Furthermore, the event aims to compile all stakeholders’ opinions and recommendations for developing a regional quality market for RES and EE sectors with significant suggestions on how that could be implemented in the different SEMCs.

This regional workshop will take place in Algiers, Algeria next on 30 October 2019 and will be attended by representatives of conformity assessment bodies, metrology institutes, standardization organizations and accreditation councils from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, Palestine and Jordan.

Regional energy experts and industrial associations will actively contribute to the discussion in order to build up a shared consolidated approach aimed at the creation of a regional quality harmonized market.

The event is by invitation only.
