Product registration in Dubai

Dubai provides several lucrative opportunities for merchants to manufacture, import, export, and distribute various products. The products range from food and health products, cosmetics, and many other manufacturing segments. The government in the UAE has made it obligatory to register every product before doing business with them. The existing law applies to all the products manufactured and distributed in Dubai.

What is Product Registration?

Product registration means getting a product evaluated for its quality and safe usage by consumers. Food products, health products, and cosmetic products are specific categories of products we humans use in our daily lives. Like for instance, food products include all edible items consumed by humans. Similarly, cosmetic products are applied to the face, skin, hair, or body.

It is imperative that all these products pass the safety test and at the same time get approvals from relevant authorities such as CPSS or the Consumer Products Safety Section. Registration validity is for five years. 

The documents required for product registration are as follows:

  • Registration Certificate of a manufacturing company
  • Laboratory test report of the concerned product
  • Free Sales certificate
  • Product analysis report
