Vehicular Emission Management in the UAE

Vehicular Emission Management in the UAE

Vehicular emission is a topic of significant debate in the UAE but is also the focus of the government with a view to lowering the nation’s rank and reputation as one of the largest consumer of natural resources in the world. Following the 2008 WWF Living Planet report that identified and ranked the UAE as the world’s largest consumer of natural resources, the country has made rapid, yet significant advances in lowering its ecological footprint—standing third in the ecological footprint category in 2014. A big part of this success story and the ongoing journey towards greater environmental responsibility are government projects through the Emirates Authority For Standardization and Metrology (ESMA). The organization’s roadmap identifies lower fuel consumption, green engines, and improved fuel quality as some of the factors that will help the UAE become a green motoring country. New rules under this roadmap require new cars purchased in the UAE to conform to a five-star emission scale that is used to reward greener cars with preferential parking, lower purchasing costs, and other subsidies.

Tire Labeling Norms Across the World

Tire Labeling Norms Across the World

Around the world, the practice of tire labeling varies based on the legislative regulations that govern the manufacture, import, and use of tires. The UAE sets the benchmark for tire labeling and rating in the MENA region with a stringent system of control that requires imported tires to label a tire with ratings based on rolling resistance and wet grip ratings. The labeling system is backed up by the introduction of a law that will require every tire sold in the UAE to be tagged with a RFID sticker that is designed to protect consumers from imitations or spurious tires. US tire labeling norms measure several common parameters such as temperature rating, traction, and treadwear while European tires are labeled based on their rolling resistance, wet grip and noise levels—an indication of the varying guidelines tailored to the requirements of each region. The UAE has set a unique benchmark by tying RFID tagging to the sale, storage, and disposal of tires—a landmark that is expected to set the tone for the world.
