UAE ID card certification
ADNOC announced the introduction of the ICV program on 1 April 2018. This means that all suppliers of goods and services must be ICV certified by ADNOC’s ICV certification body and prove that they contribute to securing ICV by calculating and declaring a certified ICV score for the previous financial year. Suppliers without ICV certification can also participate in ADNOC Group procurements. They may do so, but their ICV score will be considered “zero” when evaluating the bids, which may put them at a disadvantage compared to suppliers with higher ICV scores.
