Product Certification for UAE

Products being put on the market of the United Arab Emirates must comply with the requirements of the UAE Conformity Assessment System (ECAS) and must generally bear an ECAS conformity mark.

ECAS – the marking for UAE

Before products can be placed on the market or put into service on the market of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the conformity assessment procedure must be carried out after which an ECAS marking can be affixed to the product. By affixing an Emirates conformity mark (ECAS) the manufacturer affirms compliance of his product with all the applicable legal and technical requirements of ECAS.

The procedure for ECAS application consists of the following steps:

  • Identify and classify the product in accordance with the UAE product regulations;

  • Assign a representative based in UAE holding a valid business license;

  • Submit documents and pay the application fee;

  • Carry out product sampling and their testing in an accredited lab or determine compliance based on existing test reports;

  • Application Review by the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MOIAT)/the Notified Body;

  • Certification Decision by the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (MOIAT)/Notified Body followed by an issuing of the Certificate of Conformity (1 year validity) if the decision is positive;

  • Market monitoring.
