How do I get GMO free certs, for exporting food products to Dubai?


Dubai Municipality now seem to require a UK gov org to sign off non GMO certs for food products – anyone got any experience of this and if so how did they resolve!


A source for checking requirements is
You could also check with DEFRA 03459 33 55 77

There are agencies that do GMO free certification such as
Intertek – avonmouth office T: +44 1708 680 248
SGS -head office is in Ellesmere Port t: +44 (0) 151 350 6666
Cert ID Europe 44 (0) 121 308 1818


Thanks for your help


Hello Gary,
We are a freight forwarder and send foodstuffs to Dubai Weekly. You will need to speak to SGS or INTERTEK Inspection Agencies who carry out the GMO Test for you.
You should also speak to the RPA as you may need a Health and Hygiene certificate depending on the product.
If you would like further assistance please contact me on the below email.
