Countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Yemen and Qatar offer great opportunities for companies that wish to increase their global footprint. With the GCC Mark (sometimes referred to as G-Mark), DEKRA can provide manufacturers and importers of a wide scope of household appliances and domestic components wishing to export their products to the Middle East with testing and certification services for their products.
Test reports for the scope of low voltage electrical appliances, covering national deviations and from other IECEE-CBTL's (Certification Body Testing Laboratories) than DEKRA, are accepted. Included in the scope are products such as freezers, electrical fans, dryers, washers, toasters, hair dryers, cookers, stoves, ovens, chargers, plugs, socket-outlets and air conditioners.
All Gulf-Type Examination certificates issued by DEKRA will have a corresponding QR code. When scanned, the codes will refer the user to the GSO certificate tracking list and provide them with all the necessary details and information. This is a novelty for this scheme and for the testing, inspection, and certification industry in the Middle East.
