RATA Testing

RATA is the Relative Accuracy Test Audit which validates the air emissions data measured by Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (CEMS). RATA compares data from a facility’s CEMS to concurrently collected reference method. Air emitting facilities in Qatar are required to validate data from CEMS to ensure emissions are within limits for Consent to Operate renewal as issued by the Ministry of Environment. Our methods are in accordance with U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols. 

PES operates its own mobile hi-tech unit of RATA capable of validating readings of CEMS of oil and gas facilities. Air emissions include oxygen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitric oxide, and sulfur dioxide.

PES provides RATA services in Qatar in partnership with Australian Ektimo Air Pty Ltd which is specialized in RATA certification and accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) for the sampling and analysis of air pollutants from industrial point sources, and with technical and quality assurance system accredited to Australian Standard 17025
