Question: Is there an English version or guidance related to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) version of the RoHS Directive?
Answer: In the UAE, compliance with the RoHS Directive can be demonstrated in two different ways: If the manufacturing process for the product is complete, submitting your technical dossier will yield the Emirates Quality Mark (EQM) and certificate for a period of three years. If the product hasn’t been manufactured yet, certification can still be obtained for a period of one year in order to mitigate risk during production.
