Access market

Emirates Quality Mark (EQM) is a quality mark of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is regulated & implemented by Emirates Authority for Standardization & Metrology (ESMA), a federal authority of the UAE. With EQM, the process of consignment clearance at the ports of entry in the UAE can be expedited.

According to the current UAE regulations, EQM is mandatory for regulated products. Without EQM the regulated products are not permitted to be traded in the UAE and are subject to enforcement actions from the authorities that could include product withdrawals, fines and consignment reject at the UAE ports of entry.
