The certification process will involve an inspection of the gypsum factories, during which the quality management systems, raw materials, and production processes in place will be evaluated.

The process will also involve laboratory tests, Dubai Municipality revealed.

The launch of the service is reportedly a reflection of the municipality’s commitment to expanding its conformity assessment services of construction products, as well as its support of the production and trade of sustainable building materials.

In addition to the new service, Dubai Central Laboratory’s product conformity assessment section evaluates and certifies factories for various products, such as concrete blocks, reinforcing steel, thermal insulation materials, prefabricated concrete factories, solar water heater systems, paints and adhesives, and building facades.
