There is a comprehensive procedure for the registration of cosmetic products in Dubai. This procedure ensures the quality and safety of every single product in Dubai. Following are the main steps of this procedure.

  1. Obtaining a valid licence for the product you wish to register is the first step. This step can be completed using the Dubai Municipality portal.
  2. After that, you’ll need to fill out a CPRE (Cosmetic Products Service Application) and pay the required price.
  3. The corporate representative will now fill out the forms for each product. Every product has its own set of forms.
  4. The representative will now submit to Dubai Municipality all of the required papers (DM).
  5. If the product complies with DM regulations and all required documentation is submitted, it will be registered, and an electronic registration certificate will be generated immediately by the system.
