From July 01, 2023 - October 01, 2023 Consultation: The UAE Scheme of Notification
The national accreditation department (NAD), reporting directly to the chairman of ministry of industry and advanced technology (MoIAT), offers three crucial services which hold the key to the development of national economy through the processes of registration, accreditation, and notification in the order of increasing economic significance. The focus of this blog is on the notification. In the simplest terms notification refers to the process where MoIAT outsources its certification service to certification bodies situated in the UAE. Such certification bodies may be private or governmental. Certification bodies across the borders of the nation are equally eligible to participate in these business opportunities. These certification activities are for those schemes which are aimed to protect the safety of the consumers in the UAE, and hence their implementation is mandatory. Thus, notification promotes both the national economy as well as safety.
Certification bodies who wish to become notified bodies are required fulfil the following prerequisites: They shall be having (1) valid (a) trade license, (b) registration in the appropriate scope, (c) accreditation in the precise field(s) of the given scheme, and (2) the professional indemnity and the required resources to operate the certification. On fulfilling the above prerequisites, the certification bodies shall demonstrate their competence through the successful completion of audit conducted by MoIAT. The notified bodies, on behalf of MoIAT, are entitled to issue product conformity certificates and E mark to the products / processes / services of the manufacturers, suppliers, etc.
To create massive awareness amongst the existing and potential competent certification bodies, from UAE and abroad, about various UAE notification schemes to encourage them to take part in sharing the growing revenue while protecting the safety of consumers.
Already several certification bodies, local and international, have completed the notification process and became notified bodies. Still there are enormous opportunities to enter the business and make it a competitive one!
From August 11, 2023 - November 11, 2023 Industrial Production License Consultation
This service enables businesses to register on the Ministry of Industry
and Advanced Technology's (MoIAT) industrial registry. The license is issued to
companies that meet the requirements of industrial licensing. After obtaining
the license, the factory can benefit from a range of benefits provided by the
ministry to support the UAE's industrial sector.
One of the key advantages is the customs duty exemption for industrial
inputs (machinery, equipment, and raw materials). Additionally, the licensed
company can request a value-added certificate, which qualifies it for a
Certificate of Origin from the Ministry of Economy. This helps the factory export
products, in addition to obtaining the 'Made in the Emirates' mark, which
enhances consumer trust and provides an indication of compliance with quality
and safety standards. The mark also boosts the competitiveness of UAE-made
Registering also enables the factory, upon approval, to provide data on the availability of certain imported raw materials to ministry stakeholders. This facilitates the sourcing process, contributing to an increased reliance on locally sourced raw materials.
· Raise public awareness and enhance awareness about the Industrial Production License service.
· Introduce additional benefits for manufacturers holding the license.

· Increased interest in the service, and stakeholder awareness of the additional benefits.
· More awareness among suppliers on the possibility of sourcing raw materials from local markets.
