What is SHAMCI?
The Solar Heating Arab Mark and Certification Initiative (SHAMCI) is the first Arab certification scheme for solar thermal products and services in the Arab region. The project provides a regional industrial and regulatory compliance framework for policy makers, industrial sector, and end-consumers. Inspired by the Solar Keymark, SAHMCI is built around specific characteristics and needs of Arab states in the Middle East and North Africa. The project promotes adopting standard quality measures, accreditation systems and quality labels across the Arab region.
SHAMCI was initiated by the Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Renewable Energy with the support of the Arabian Industrial Development and Mining Organization (AIDMO) based on the Arab Ministerial Council of Electricity (AMEC) of the League of Arab States request.
