kA Testing Facility has been active in the United Arab Emirates for a number of years, which gives us good insight into the specific local requirements that panel builders in the coutry are facing.

In the emirate of Abu Dhabi (and beyond), the standard IEC 61439 is supplemented by ADDC’s Guidelines for Design, Testing and Installation of LV Switchgear (PDF) and they recommend that any manufacturer shall visit the website of Regulation and Supervision Bureau (RSB) to understand the regulatory standards applicable for low voltage installations.


If you are a low voltage switchgear manufacturer based in United Arab Emirates, or based elsewhere and looking to supply panels the UAE market, please contact us to discuss your testing and certification requirements..
