Emirates Engineering’s calibration laboratory has become one of the first facilities within the Middle East’s aviation industry to be awarded the ISO 17025 accreditation, which was awarded by the Dubai Accreditation Department of Dubai Municipality.

Introduced back in December 2015, the ISO 17025 is an accreditation for electrical calibration put forward by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). EASA mandated that all calibration laboratories’ servicing tools and equipment used in the maintenance of aircraft and respective components, are required to comply with ISO 17025 within a period of two years following its inception.

Mohammed Jaffer Nassar, Emirates SVP, Engineering, said: “Quality and accuracy are of paramount importance at Emirates Engineering. Over the last two years we have vigorously put in place a number of measures to ensure that our processes in the calibration lab are compliant to ISO 17025.

“As one of the first organisations in the aviation industry in the UAE to be certified compliant to ISO 17025, we’re in a strong position to maintain the highest standards of quality in aircraft maintenance in Emirates and to also offer our services to external organisations both regionally and globally,” he added.

The team at Emirates Engineering maintains Emirates’ fleet, which comprises of over 265 aircraft. The company’s capabilities range from line maintenance and scheduled checks, to engine maintenance and cabin modification.
