Establishing Global Relationships
The MENA Building Science Advisory Council was inaugurated in early 2022 to facilitate establishing strong relationships with experts and provide its members with a platform for sharing unbiased expertise to the market and regulators about emergent issues in building safety.
With the growing number of members in the MENA Building Science Advisory Council, the goal is to promote efficient and effective communication among key industry players in the building safety environment. This can be done via a platform that enables knowledge sharing in areas related to training, code development and standardization processes, product evaluation, testing, among others.
The Code Council works closely with the regional demand drivers and enablers to assist in developing and creating vital sustainable development initiatives that bring value and enhance the user experience globally.
