Aldar's ICV Program

Suppliers are strongly encouraged to undertake the ICV certification process to attain the ICV certificate.

In ALDAR’s ICV program, suppliers are expected to provide the entity’s latest ICV certificate (Version 3.0) in the bid submissions. While it is not compulsory to hold an ICV certificate to participate in the tendering process, suppliers that have an ICV certificate will have advantage during the evaluation process.

All suppliers are strongly encouraged to undertake an ICV evaluation and certification process to attain an ICV certification. The evaluation will examine your value-added contribution to the UAE in areas including:

  • Local manufacturing
  • Procurement of third-party goods and services
  • Local investment and it is growth
  • Emiratization of workforce
  • Expatriate contribution
  • Generation of income from outside UAE (exports)

The certification will verify the contribution in these areas. Suppliers are expected to complete the Certification Submission Template and approach one of the empaneled certifying bodies who are authorized to issue ICV certificates. The list of the authorized Certifying bodies is available.

Suppliers can refer to Supplier submission guidelines for assistance in completing the submission documents.
