Automaker Stellantis Middle East recently organised a one-day insight session on EV safety standards. The workshop specifically explored Electric Vehicles (EVs) service centre and vehicle safety standards for the Gulf Standardization Organization (GSO) and delegates from Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) regulatory and standardisation bodies. 

Held at the Certified eExpert Center Facility of Swaidan Trading Co. LLC in Dubai, the event aimed to assist regional regulatory bodies in understanding more about best practices and procedures in EV Service centres and ensure consistent safety standards across markets.

The discussions included a comprehensive overview of Stellantis’s current GSO-certified EV lineup, the criteria for eExpert Center Certification, safety protocols for handling EV accidents, EV battery handling, Service centre safety requirements, and guidelines for EV personal protection equipment (PPE).

Commenting on the workshop, Shahzad Tauqir, Director of Aftersales at Stellantis Middle East, said: “We are honoured to organise the Gulf Standardization Organization and Gulf Cooperation Council regulatory delegates at our eExpert facility in UAE. This marks a significant milestone for Stellantis Middle East, reinforcing our dedication to pushing the boundaries of EV mobility in the region. We remain committed to driving innovation and sustainability, working closely with regulatory bodies to enhance safety and environmental protection.”

The EV safety standards session was attended by representatives from the GSO; UAE Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology; Saudi Standards, Metrology, and Quality Organization (SASO); Bahrain Standards & Metrology Directorate (BSMD); Oman Directorate General for Standards and Metrology (DGSM); Qatar General Organization for Standardization (QS); and Kuwait Standards and Industrial Services Affairs (KOWSMD).
