Abu Dhabi’s Environment Agency launches digital system for environmental inspection and compliance evaluation

Abu Dhabi’s Environment Agency introduces Eltezam, a digital system for environmental inspections and compliance evaluations. It assists inspectors in scrutinizing organizations for potential environmental harm, even beyond licensed activities. Aligned with modern technological advancements, the system uses algorithms to assess industrial sectors and their operations. The initiative aims to enhance inspection capabilities across various industries and development projects under the agency’s oversight.

The Environment Agency of Abu Dhabi (EAD) launched ‘Eltezam’, a digital system for environmental inspection and compliance evaluation. The new system allows EAD inspectors to review any aspect of an organisation’s activities regarding potential environmental harms (regardless of whether the activities are listed in the organisation’s environmental licence).

The system is built on algorithms that connect industrial sectors with production processes and conditions.

Faisal Al Hammadi, Acting Executive Director of the Environmental Quality Sector at EAD, noted: ‘The agency has developed modern technological tools and programs that ensure compliance by industrial facilities and development projects with environmental laws and requirements.’

The Unit Head, Compliance and Enforcement at EAD, Ahmed Al Waheebi, said that this new digital system aims to strengthen EAD’s inspection role and expand its coverage to all industrial sectors, infrastructure projects, and commercial activities under its jurisdiction.
