The market of the United Arab Emirates, and Dubai in particular, is extremely attractive for exporters from all over the world. A favorable tax system, developed infrastructure, and strategic location make Dubai an excellent springboard for entering the markets of the Middle East, Africa, and other regions.

However, in order to successfully import and sell your products in the UAE, it is necessary to obtain national certificates and permits. And determining exactly which types of certification are required for your products can be challenging.

For example, for household appliances and electrical devices, certificates such as G-Mark, ECAS RoHS, ECAS LVE, TDRA, and others may be required based on the availability of international standard test reports. For food products and children's goods, in addition to the ECAS certificate, an EQM certificate as well as Halal certification may be required.

At the same time, specific requirements directly depend on the product category, its characteristics, materials, and areas of application. For some types of products, only basic certification is required, while for others, a much broader set of procedures must be followed.

It can be difficult to understand this variety of requirements on your own. In such situations, manufacturers are advised to seek the help of experienced specialists. In our company, our experts are ready to assist in conducting a full assessment of your products and clearly identifying all applicable certification requirements in Dubai and the UAE as a whole. This will allow you to initially plan the necessary procedures and required resources.

Another common challenge is incomplete documentation from contract manufacturers. It often turns out that critically important test reports are missing. In such cases, we are ready to help organize the necessary product testing in accredited international laboratories.

It is also important not to forget about other nuances. For example, the requirement to register a legal entity in the UAE in order to obtain certificates. Or the fact that even the type of packaging for test samples can affect the list of required permits.

In conclusion, it is worth noting that Dubai is not just a local market, but a gateway to the markets of the entire Middle East and North Africa. Therefore, when planning exports here, it is advisable to calculate in advance the opportunities for further expansion into neighboring countries.

If you are planning to bring your products to the markets of the UAE and the Persian Gulf region, do not try to figure out all the nuances on your own. Just take the first step - contact the experts of our company. We will be happy to help you better understand the specifics of this market, determine a clear plan of action, and support you at all stages of certification.
