In UAE, cosmetic products need to be registered with two agencies: Dubai Municipality (DM) and Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA). DM registration enables the product to be sold in a retail chain while the ESMA registration enables the product to be imported into the country, at the port of entry.

Company needs to be registered locally with ‘general trading’ license in order to register the products in UAE. Hence, a local representative is required for registration.
