UAE Accreditation ‘Recognition of Commitment to Region’


CARES Middle East has achieved an important milestone by being granted accreditation from the Emirates International Accreditation Centre (EIAC), further strengthening ties with regulators and all stakeholders across the steel value chain in one of the world’s most dynamic construction markets.

The announcement follows a rigorous assessment process conducted by EIAC which assesses the competence and standards of a wide range of professional bodies delivering professional services, including product certification. CARES strongly believes that independent accreditation, by EIAC, is the preferred means of demonstrating the competence, impartiality and integrity of a product certification body.

“Confirmation that we have achieved formal accreditation from EIAC in the UAE is enormously important for the construction sector,” said CARES Chief Executive Officer Lee Brankley.

“We are proud of the product certification we have undertaken on behalf of a growing number of steel manufacturers in this region,” he said.

“The decision taken by EIAC to confirm CARES Middle East’s accreditation is recognition not only of the commitment delivered by colleagues based in the UAE, but also the support provided by the wider CARES team,” said Dr. Ali Al Jassim, Chair of CARES Middle East.

Under the terms of the newly-awarded EIAC certificate, CARES Middle East is recognised as an accredited provider of product certification across the UAE. The accreditation, which represents the first statutory approval achieved by CARES in the region, runs through to May 2027.
