They also have 45 internationally certified assessors, 67 auditors and an extended team comprising 1029 members.

Colonel Bin Nassar and Major Tariq Madfaa spoke about the organisation’s focus on quality throughout the course of the event, commenting that the concepts of quality applied to any decision, process, product or service that the force develops in order to be able to achieve stakeholder satisfaction.
