MEFMA pushes for creation of regulatory framework to govern Middle East’s facilities management industry


The Middle East Facility Management Association (MEFMA), a non-profit association that provides a dedicated platform for FM professionals, wider construction industry stakeholders and owner associations, recently convened a group of facilities management (FM) leaders and stakeholders in Abu Dhabi in a high-level networking event organized to push for an all-encompassing regulatory framework to govern the region’s entire FM industry. 

Held at the Radisson Blu on Yas Island and hosted by MEFMA Strategic Sub-Committee, the meeting on ‘Regional Legislation & Regulation in Facilities Management’ served as a platform for the attendees to examine the existing local, federal, and state laws and policies concerning regional FM activities. The participants consolidated the strengths of the current laws and collaborated to bridge gaps as part of the efforts to come up with unified and strong legislation.

Jamal Lootah, MEFMA President, said: “Stakeholders across the region should continue to work closely together throughout the phases of the legislative and regulatory development to ensure that all areas are going to be covered and all requirements are going to be met. The points discussed and raised during the networking event will lay the groundwork for a common, standardized approach that can be adhered to in the region in line with suitable industry practices. As for MEFMA, we will continue to play an instrumental role in facilitating communications among stakeholders to achieve the shared goals for the benefit of the industry and all concerned entities,”.

During the event, a presentation and a panel discussion took place. The panel discussion focused on the objectives and benefits of having a legally compliant framework; the importance of regulating FM activities; challenges and non-compliance scenario; and the region’s capabilities to implement such a framework. They also tackled how to ensure that the framework would be at par with its international counterparts.

Additionally, the participants not only interacted with each other during the networking session, but they also took the chance to express their views on the three main topics titled ‘Industry Body Collaboration and Cooperation;’ ‘FM Companies and Licensing Requirements;’ and ‘Regulation/Standardization of Regulation.

“The association would like to thank the participants for sharing their insights on how we can further raise the industry’s global competitiveness, especially at a time when the market has started to recognize the advantages and the benefits to be gained from utilizing specialized FM services. The participants in the event, which represented the first gathering of its kind in the region, have called for the creation of a regulatory body that will ensure compliance and accountability within the FM community. This move will not only make the sector more efficient and professional, but it will further emphasize the industry’s role in the Middle East’s growth and development”, Lootah concluded.

    Thanks for your write-up. I would love to say this that the first thing you will need to perform is verify if you really need credit restoration. To do that you will need to get your hands on a replica of your credit history. That should never be difficult, because the government makes it necessary that you are allowed to be issued one absolutely free copy of your actual credit report on a yearly basis. You just have to ask the right men and women. You can either find out from the website for your Federal Trade Commission or maybe contact one of the main credit agencies directly.
