GCC countries adopt draft UAE regulations for electric vehicles

GCC countries have adopted the UAE's draft regulations on the use of electric vehicles, thanks to their positive features which take into account safety requirements, overall performance of electric vehicles, and their adaptation to weather conditions in the region.

Abdulla Al Maeeni, Director-General of the Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology, ESMA, said that the GCC Standardisation Organisation is currently drafting their own regulations based on those documents.

Al Maeeni added that ESMA is also working on, through the UAE draft, a new phase of eco-friendly and economically-beneficial national policies.

The main purpose of adopting these directives was to protect the environment from pollution and emissions, as well as to support the national economy, encourage new sources of economic growth, and realise the country's strategy that aims to support eco-friendly concepts and innovation, he further added.
