Since its formation; Trakhees Accreditation Program has strived to raise awareness of Trakhees Standards & Regulations in order to increase compliance and reduce penalties, and to maximize productivity by reducing the time of the reviewing/ inspection and approvals process to improve customer service.
As the regulatory arm of Dubai World, Trakhees regulations span many areas related to construction, safety, environment protection, health and hygiene. The Accreditation Programs was developed by a professional Human Resources and Training organization, under Trakhees direction. These programs are designed to move these processes from Quality Control to Quality Assurance and for accredited personnel to be well-versed in the contents of the regulations so as to help them comply with the Authority's requirements.
Trakhees Accreditation Program aims to ensure quality and performance of both design and construction in all projects under its jurisdiction and to enhance the knowledge of safety, environment protection, health and hygiene, and to continually improve the level of compliance from our valuable customers/clients.
All companies having projects under Trakhees jurisdiction have to follow the latest Circulars for Trakhees Accreditation Requirements. Proof of Accreditation is in the form of Accreditation ID Card.
After completing the program and in order to obtain the Accreditation ID, the participant is required to successfully complete an assessment held in Trakhees Offices.
Accreditation ID is not required in the event that the participant does not have any projects under Trakhees jurisdiction and is interested to enroll in the program for their knowledge. A Certificate of Attendance will be issued upon successful completion of the program.
