ISO Annual Meeting 2022 in Abu Dhabi concludes with call to harmonise standards to drive sustainable global change

ABU DHABI, The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) Annual Meeting 2022, hosted by the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MoIAT), concluded in Abu Dhabi.

More than 5,300 delegates participated, physically and virtually, in thematic sessions exploring how international standards can be improved and leveraged to support climate action, trade growth and sustainable economic development.

Omar Al Suwaidi, Under-Secretary of MoIAT, delivered a closing speech, in which he urged national and international standards bodies to build on the work and discussions that took place during the event.

“These annual meetings give us great confidence in the efforts of global counterparts to exchange knowledge, experiences, and expertise. We have successfully implemented this year’s theme of ‘Collaborating for Good’, reinforcing existing partnerships and facilitating new ones. Together, we have helped direct the trajectory of the global standards and conformity ecosystem,” Al Suwaidi said.

“I urge you to take new knowledge and learnings forward to your entities and organisations. I encourage you to continue building on this week’s platform and partnerships as we move towards our shared vision. A vision that seeks to build trust, trade, and collaboration,” he added.

In her closing remarks, Ulrika Francke, ISO President, stated, “This year’s Annual Meeting has demonstrated that sustainability is key, and we have shown how relevant the London Declaration will be going forward. We all know what standards can do, what an effective tool they can be for meeting global challenges. In a couple of weeks’ time, our net zero guidelines will be ready to launch, which will once again show how dedicated we are as an organisation to tackling climate change.”

The ISO General Assembly on Thursday elected a new President-elect, Dr. Sung Hwan Cho, who will replace Ulrika Francke as ISO President in January 2024, after she has served her term. Four new ISO Council members were also elected. They include Egyptian Organisation for Standardisation & Quality (EOS), Egypt, Associação Brasileira de Normas Técnicas (ABNT), Brazil, Instituto de Normas Técnicas de Costa Rica (INTECO), Costa Rica, and Ente Italiano di Normazione (UNI), Italy. On Friday, a series of regional workshops took place providing dedicated, sustainable, and tailor-made support directly to all ISO members.

More than 30 thematic sessions and workshops took place during the ISO Annual Meeting 2022. Several sessions were organised in collaboration with MoIAT, including “Convergence of technologies and youth collaboration”, “Has Covid launched the digital transformation of conformity assessment?”, and “The circular economy: going digital”.

Throughout the week, numerous sessions focused on the relationship between standards, climate, and trade.

Four memoranda of understanding (MoUs) were signed by MoIAT during the event. Each MoU aimed to enhance collaboration in standards to support advancement in areas such as trade and economies. MoIAT signed MoUs with the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS), the Jordan Standards and Metrology Organisation (JSMO), ASTM International, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

The ISO Annual Meeting is considered the most important date in the standardisation calendar. Hosting the meeting in the UAE reflects the country’s position as a globally recognised and established industrial hub that is conducive to business growth and exporting. The event signifies the global community’s confidence in the UAE’s quality infrastructure system as well as the role played by the country in helping to enhance standards and conformity at home and abroad.

With the UAE having been a key member of the ISO Council over the last decade, especially in the past two years as a member of its board, MoIAT is committed to collaborating with regional and global counterparts, aligning with international standards and contributing to their development, and enhancing quality infrastructure while also exchanging experiences and sharing best practices.
