2017 Automechanika Academy

Spare Parts and Maintenance Conference

May 7, 2017, Dubai, UAE


Periodic technical inspection and maintenance has always been an integral part of the yearly registration process for vehicles in the GCC; and as more vehicles hit the streets in the region, ensuring their road-worthiness is crucial.

Usage of genuine parts, maintenance and repair post an accident, technical skill and knowledge of the garage staff are some of the key factors that are of significant importance. Therefore, getting the vehicle maintained and/or repaired by accredited workshops becomes even more imperative.

In the UAE, the regulatory authorities have been working on standards and laws to regulate the vehicle services sector which involves classifying garages, repair shops and rating them according to the services and facilities they provide. The objective of this is to be as transparent as possible to the consumers in order for them to decide where they want specific work to be done. 

The Automechanika Academy’s Spare Parts and Maintenance Conference which will be held on May 7, 2017 as a part of Automechanika Dubai 2017, will feature critical discussion and debates that will provide you with significant insights into the technical aspects of these standards and regulations and how it will impact the automotive aftermarket sector in the region.

By attending the Spare Parts and Maintenance Conference you will be able to understand:

• The garage certification standards put forward by the Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA)
• Training and skillset requirements for the technical staff in workshops and garages
• Type regulations and standards
• The role of telematics in vehicle maintenance and repairs
