Dubai – Masaader News
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) initiated a collaboration with the British Standards Institute (BSI) to set the world’s first Publicly Available Standard (PAS) standard that would document best utility risk management practices for the electricity and water sector.
This move comes as part of DEWA’s efforts to consolidate its global positioning and achieve its vision to become a sustainable innovative world-class utility. The new standard is a key pillar in advancing risk management standards and addressing any problems, constraints or gaps in existing global standards and practices.
DEWA participated in an international workshop held in London last June aimed at harmonising the new standard by bringing together major utilities in America and Europe to gain consensus on the effectiveness of the specified standards.
