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.

The Goal:

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!
