Importance of Dubai Civil Defence Inspection and Completion Certificate

The vision of the Dubai Civil Defence has always stood firm “To have the United Arab Emirates as one of the best countries in the world in achieving Safety and Security”. With the objective to protect lives by providing safety and security to all industrial, commercial, residential, and public establishments in the Emirate. Acquisition of DCD Inspection and Completion Certificate are both important to assure that the vision of the government authority of Safety and Security is firmly established and followed. DCD Inspection requirements and processes are set accordingly on the e-services portal for a simple and hassle-free procedure.

Licenses for any construction activities are only issued through the Development Department of the Dubai Civil Defence by providing credentials to qualified engineers and fire safety and first aid officers who have taken and passed the relevant examinations, courses, and training.
