How to get an ICV Certificate in UAE?

Entities inside and outside the UAE can obtain ICV certificates. A strategic initiative by the country’s government, the ICV certification program, intends to strengthen the industrial economy. Even though ICV certification isn’t compulsory, more companies are applying for it, as it gives them an added weightage during tender assessments.

Obtaining an ICV certificate in the UAE is easy, provided all the guidelines are followed correctly. Only an ICV-approved auditor/ audit firm has the authority to give the certificate. HLB HAMT is one of the certifying bodies to issue the ICV Certificate per the Ministry’s requirements.
