BSI is an approved testing and certification body for UAE Civil Defence for provision of certificates of conformity (CoC) which is mandated throughout the Emirates
Civil Defence CoC’s are implemented under the UAE fire and life safety code and listed products require full product certification requiring type testing in accordance with the applicable standard and a factory audit at the place of manufacture.
BSI is currently approved for the following categories of product (specific standards are listed on the Civil Defence site):
• Fire Suppression
• Fire Detection
• Emergency Lighting
• Gas Products (not appliances)
Manufacturers that seek testing and certification from BSI will attain the BSI Kitemark™ before receiving a CoC and it is important to inform BSI at the earliest stage possible if a CoC is required due to the strict requirements imposed by the Civil Defence for this level of approval.
