A new cooperative agreement between NCRMA and Dubai Central Laboratory of the Dubai Municipality (DCL-DM) recognizes the technical equivalencies of concrete plant and truck certification programs. NRMCA will now offer certificates to concrete plants operating in Dubai that have earned the DCL-DM plant and truck certification. According to a press release:
NRMCA has been administering its plant and truck certification program since 1965 and demonstrates compliance with standard specifications for ready mixed concrete. Established in 2012, the DCL-DM certification program for concrete production facilities works on similar principals to meet similar standards for concrete production in Dubai. The certification process for both the DCL-DM and NRMCA programs require extensive on site inspection by qualified individuals of both the production facility and delivery vehicles to ensure they comply with the standards and are capable of producing high quality concrete. Plants and vehicles require annual re- certification.
