Set-up-a-company-for-manufacture-of-tobacco-products-in-DubaiJust any other country, the UAE has a strong manufacturing industry. One of the best places to start a manufacturing business is Dubai. Foreign investors are also welcomed to set up manufacturing companies in Dubai in the food and beverages industry, but also in the tobacco sector.

Those interested in manufacturing tobacco products in Dubai must comply with several laws and regulations imposed at national and emirate levels. These laws are:

  • -          the Federal Law No. 15 Regarding Tobacco Control;
  • -          the Issuance of Conformity Certificate for Cigarettes Products Regulations;
  • -          the Issuance of Conformity Certificate for Labeling of Packages of Tobacco Products Regulations.

The last two legal frameworks refer to companies manufacturing tobacco products in the UAE, including in Dubai.

Our company formation consultants in Dubai can offer more information on the legislation related to manufacturing tobacco products.
